A welcome—and timely—contribution. Theoretically innovative and empirically rich case studies document the complex, uneven, and often surprising ways in which European identities are—or are not—changing. Transnational Identities will find a wide and appreciative audience among students of identity, Europeanists, and social scientists of various methodological orientations.
— Jeffrey T. Checkel, University of Oslo
Works like Transnational Identities go along way toward developing a pool of evidence which social scientist can examine and consider now, while future historians of late-twentieth century Europe will be able to explore for many years to come. This is an important and useful work for any scholars in the social sciences studying identity formation.
— Andrew D. Devenney, Central Michigan University; H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online
The book proves to be an insightful reading and makes a remarkable contribution to the academic debates on European political identity and European democratic governance.
— Global and European Law Books Review Program

Teachers and students interested in the evolving European polity will want to read this impressive collection.
