National cultures and European integration: exploratory essays on cultural diversity and common policies
Nominated for The Adolphe Bentinck Prize This book provides a timely contribution to the contemporary debate on the cultural dimension of European integration. Eight authors from a wide range of disciplines - political science, economics, cultural studies, and history - develop conceptual, as well as empirical themes showing the importance of cultural diversity in Europe. The studies in this book address questions such as: > How different is British political culture from the French? > Will nation states disappear? > Are there cultural barriers to economic integration?
