The History of the European Union synopsis
This book fundamentally reinvents the EU's origins as a transient and tribal frontier state. It emerged between the Schuman plan in May 1950 and the first expansion of European societies in early 1973.
Based on theories of social sciences and debates as well as recent historical research, Wolfram Kaiser and Morten Rasmussen discuss Their introductory chapters are innovative ways of describing the history of the European Union as the emergence of a transnational political society and a supra-national political system. Based on these visions, eight chapters based on multilateral and multi-archival research follow the case studies of transnational networks, the public domain, institutional cultures and policy-making that illustrate the regular aspects of the early history of the EuropeanUnion. In the concluding chapter, the great scientist Alex Wurley-Lac demonstrates how interdisciplinary cooperation, especially between contemporaryhistory and political studies, can greatly enhance our knowledge of the European Union as a complex political organization.
This book will be of interest to students, political scientists, European studies and history.
