"Sociology of the European Union examines how core sociological theories, concepts and methods can be applied to the study of the EU. Carefully integrating theory and empirical research, the book: explores key concepts in European studies, such as Europeanization, integration and transnationalism; assesses the social foundations of Europe, from class and citizenship to mobility and culture; includes contributions by internationally renowned names in political, economic and cultural sociology; and contains a postface from George Ross, one of the leading figures in contemporary European Studies. This thought-provoking book opens up new questions and debates whilst introducing readers to essential ideas and cutting-edge research. It is invaluable reading for students of Sociology, European Studies, Politics and International Relations."-- Provided by publisher.
