New Europe in Transition
Peter J. Anderson, Georg Wiessala, Christopher Williams
Continuum, 2000 - History - 325 pages
This work takes as its focus a selection of the key political and other (for example cultural, legal, economic and social) questions which currently confront Europe. These questions are addressed on three levels: first at the level of the major institutions which straddle large parts of Europe - NATO, the OSCE and the EU; second from the perspective of a large sample of European countries, including parts of the former Soviet Union; and third with regard to the economic, cultural and social dimensions of European society, both East and West. In addition, each chapter addresses two core themes: the impact of globalization on the European way of life, and the problems of and potential threats to democracy.
