This book combines perspectives from political science, history and geography to provide a comprehensive introduction to ‘Europe’ or European space as we understand it today. Central to the book is the phenomenon of the sovereign state and the question of alternative ways of organizing Europe politically and economically. The book explores four different ways of organizing space: state, union, region and network.
