British Journal of Sociology
"By drawing on a wide range of empirical and theoretical studies, Outhwaite has written a readable and accessible book on contemporary European society."
"An insightful study of the emerging shape of Europe. Outhwaite skillfully demonstrates the significance of a European as opposed to a national level of analysis. A lot of ground is covered in this excellent short book."
Gerard Delanty, University of Sussex
