About the Book

This book provides theoretical and empirical discussion of migration, identity and Europeanisation. With contributions from leading international scholars, it provides both an overview of theoretical perspectives and a comprehensive set of case studies, covering both Eastern and Western Europe. Contributors draw from disciplines such as historical sociology, discourse analysis, social psychology and migration studies, while the editors bring these subjects into a coherent theoretical and historical framework, to discuss the emergence of new collective identities and new borders in Europe today.

Reviews

'…this book is worth reading: it introduces a number of interesting scholars who rarely publish in English but who obviously have something to contribute. In this way the book not only communicates interesting research results about European integration; it is also part of this intergration.'

Lisanne Wilken, Aalborg University, Nations, Culture and Nationalism, Vol. 10, Part 4, October 2004.
