Book Description

Europe Unbound provides an analysis of the enlargement of the European Union and examines from both a theoretical and a political approach issues such as:
* Where does Europe end?
* Should Europe's borders be open or closed?
* How does the evolution of territorial politics impact on the course of European integration?
This book draws upon such diverse fields as History, Sociology, Political Science and International Relations and contains contributions from an international range of respected academics.
