'Honouring both the plurality and fecundity that characterises discursive approaches, this book demonstrates the pertinence of focussing on discourses, in their many different hues, to understanding one of the most salient developments of the contemporary international system: the production, reproduction and transformation of Europe. It will be of great interest all at once to students and scholars interested in the role of language in international politics, the workings of international governance, or indeed in the great European project.'Charlotte Epstein, University of Sydney, Australia'With its unique collection of essays, this book celebrates two kinds of diversity: the highly diverse discursive environment that constitutes the EU's multifaceted identities, and the many academic approaches to analysing these multiple intersecting narratives. A fascinating read celebrating what we need to accept as the EU's irredeemable polyphony.'Kalypso Nicolaidis, University of Oxford, UK'This book represents an excellent contribution to the literature. First, it unpacks discourse analysis and demonstrates the diversity of the various discursive approaches. Second, it uses these discourse analytical lenses to shed new light on EU foreign policy. Essential reading for anybody interested in the application of discourse analysis to "real world" issues!'Thomas Risse, Freie Universitat Berlin, Germany
