The first chapter of the book examines identity through analyzing different theories. It also offers scholars' reflection on European Identity and makes a definition of European Identity.
Analyzing the failure of the Constitutional Treaty (2004) in the second chapter, the book provides solid evidence how rivalry of identities affects people's vote and, as a result, EU integration in general. The findings of the chapter may well explain why British voted to leave the EU.
The third chapter confronts European Identity with national identities of EU's member states. The last chapter argues about the existence of the European civic demos (similar to that of USA) which, at the moment, is so strongly expressed in the form of European Identity.
The book sheds lights on the evolution and role of European Identity.

About the Author
Endri Shqerra completed his graduate studies at the University of New York Tirana. His writing career started just there when his diss. got a distinguishing mark and was subsequently published by LAMBERT Academic Publishing. He would like to make a note for his supervisor Prof. Kostantinos Giakoumis whose commitment and hard work with his diss. deserve to remind him as his co-author in his first book, even though his name does not appear in the book cover. Later, his publisher asked him a book related to the topic of an essay he had published. It was at that time when the work with his second book began. Since then his devotion has been writing and he is proud of following the path of his father and relatives who were writers, an inheritance which intensifies his commitment to writing. At the moment he is writing a new book titled “Religious Harmony”, which, he hopes, will be interesting to the readers.
