Series Editor: Martin Schain
The Europe in Transistion Series explores the core questions facing the new Europe. Two decades ago, the collapse of the Soviet empire promised a new era of stability and prosperity in Europe. While part of this promise has been fulfilled, the new era has also been defined by unanticipated conflict and war linked to older conflicts that had been held in abeyance during the long Cold War. As a result of post-war migration, as well as a more recent influx of refugees, the new Europe has also become increasingly multi-ethnic and multi-cultural, and new political cleavages have developed around questions of identity. For this series, the authors and editors focus on such issues as the process and development of European union, shifting political alliances, military arrangements, the impact of immigration on European societies and politics, and the emergence of ethno-nationalism within the boundaries of Europe. The series includes both collective volumes that are tightly woven around a single theme as well as monographs that examine (or re-examine) the forces of change since the war.
