Title Bringing Europe Down to Earth: Identity Politics of the European Union
Author(s) Hellström, Anders
Date 2008
English abstract
Why is it considered more European to vote in the affirmative of the Euro than it is to vote against it? Why is it not possible to be a populist and a "Good European" at the same time? What makes an illegal immigrant different from a tourist? What makes Europe different from other imagined communities such as 'the nation'? This book deals with questions that concern what it means to be, act and think as Europeans in Europe. In his attempts to bringing Europe down to earth, the author highlights contradictions that are inherent in our perceptions of what makes Europe "Europe".
