Published in 1999. Issues of citizenship and identity have rapidly moved up the European and social science agendas in recent years. This book explores the reason for this. It focuses on the dilemmas of citizenship and identify in the uncertain and unpredictable atmosphere of fin de siècle Europe.

In the course of eight essays, it explores the general theoretical issues of citizenship and identity – and the relationship between these – in contemporary Europe; the various aspects of European Union citizenship (two chapters); democracy and multiculturalism in Western Europe; pluralism and citizenship, with particular reference to gender in West European politics; the various implications for gender politics of divorce in Western Europe; exclusion and inclusion in central and Eastern Europe; and the extent to which the idea of a Yugoslav national identity has been a failure.

Citizenship and Identity in Europe will appeal both to informed generalists and to students and scholars of Europe who seek analyses of these issues in Eastern, central and Western Europe from a wide range of perspectives. At a time when the future of Europe is looking more uncertain than it has for decades, this book is both timely and thought-provoking.


’…another excellent volume in consideration of the complex international issues of the day…this book excellently treats some of the problems which the European Union is going to have to face in the years ahead…a vital study for anyone concerned with the complexities of European Union and its consequence for Europe as a whole…’ The Coastal Piedmont Leader ’…this volume offers the reader - interested in Europe - good and more importantly wide access to questions of the utmost topicality.’ Journal of European Integration History
