Book of the Week: “What is Europe?” by Anna Triandafyllidou and Ruby Gropas
This authoritative yet accessible introduction to understanding Europe today moves beyond accounts of European integration to provide a wide-ranging and nuanced study of contemporary Europe and its historical development. This fully updated edition adds material on recent developments, such as Brexit and the migrant and Eurozone crises. What is Europe? explores the evolving conceptions of Europe from antiquity to the present. This book is all the more timely as Europe responds to the Russian invasion of Ukraine and Britain’s departure from the European Union, the financial slump, refugee emergencies, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
