European Disintegration : A Search for Explanations Paperback / softback
Part of the Palgrave Studies in European Union Politics series
This book accounts for whether and how the path of the European Union (EU) has developed towards potential disintegration.
These questions have become particularly relevant since the outbreak of the debt crises in the Eurozone and the Brexit referendum.
The author critically subverts theories of European integration and analyses the rise and fall of federations, empires and states in a comparative perspective.
The most promising theory presented here indicates that Brexit is not likely to be followed by other member states leaving the EU.
Nevertheless, the EU has been undermined from within as it cannot adequately address Eurosceptic dissatisfaction from both the left and right.
This book is an essential read for everyone interested in the EU and its future.
