"Self-consciously and by design not a conventional social science product, Favell's book propels the reader much as a novel would into the private lives of 60 'pioneers of European integration,' educated and highly skilled trailblazers representing the 'small but symbolically powerful population' who have voluntarily left their 'nation-state society' to reap the rewards of denizenship in a big, rich Eurocity in northwest Europe." (American Journal of Sociology, September 2009)
"Favell analyses the new migration trends, challenges to the welfare state, and forms of urban cosmopolitanism linked to processes of European integration." (European Urban Knowledge Network Research & Practice Review, February 2009)
"In his new book, sociologist Adrian Favell challenges the belief that 'Eurostars' or high-flying expat Europeans, can live successfully anywhere in the EU." (Time Out Amsterdam, January 2009)"A fascinating insight into the crucial and elusive topic of European identity, Eurostars and Eurocities is a pleasure to read."
—Gideon Rachman, Financial Times
"Who are the Europeans? Eurostars and Eurocities presents a convincing portrait of the pitfalls, opportunities, sorrows and joys of people who have decided to give life a go in another European society."
—Neil Fligstein, University of California, Berkeley
"A rich ethnography that will surely become a major historical document of the experiences of free movers in the EU."
—Juan Díez Medrano, University of Barcelona
