From the Back Cover
This book is about how every age invented the idea of Europe in the mirror of its own identity: Europe is as much an idea as it is a reality, but it is also a contested idea and it was in adversity that European identity was constructed as a dichotomy of Self and Other. The book analyses the origins and development of the idea of Europe as a social construction from the earliest times to the present. Its challenging thesis is that the European idea has lent itself to a politics of division and exclusion, which has been disguised by superficial notions of unity. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Still "the must" in teaching on European integration
7 September 2008 - Published on Amazon.com
One person found this helpful.
Despite the time which passed since the book first appeared it is still the publication that is most valued by the students. In the style of historical sociology the book beautifully presents how in the course of time the idea of Europe has developed. Also, the readers can identify the factors, which have developed over the time, and now create problems and barriers for European integration. In effect of Delanty's analysis one gets, however, solid arguments for necessity and inevitability of further European integration. It is hard to find the book that would be more useful as a background reading for teaching on European integration.
