Overview

This ambitious volume analyses the contradictions and tensions at the heart of European integration, economically as well as politically, and reveals the surprising ways in which these contradictions and tensions have manifested themselves.

The contributions illustrate the complicity of key social forces in the spread of neoliberalism and finance-led economic strategies and identify the more or less active strategic role of specific social forces in establishing, guiding, mediating, or resisting its logic.
