The Road to the European Union, Volume 1
Jacques Rupnik, Jan Zielonka
Manchester University Press, Nov 8, 2003 - Political Science - 293 pages
This book, the first of two volumes, covers the preparation for accession to the European Union in the Czech and Slovak Republics. The chapters focus on the conceptual challenges facing the European Union as a result of the enlargement process, such as institutional reform, Europe's new borders and the cultural identity of an enlarged Union. Each chapter also identifies and analyzes the problems facing the individual East European applicant from a comparative perspective. It examines the causes and implications of the Czech-Slovak break up, and the two nations' separate road to the European Union.
