Description

This volume draws together contributors from diverse backgrounds to analyze European development. It acknowledges the problem at the heart of this process - namely the interplay between the logic of contemporary economic forces and the sometimes dissonant and conflicting cultural, social and political forces which have shaped Europe's turbulent history.
