"This book takes seriously the properties of a society that emerges out of the increasing interaction of national societies in Europe. Based on an impressive grasp of comparative research the authors succeed in making sense of a transnational" perspective on the emerging European society." Klaus Eder, Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin "This is the first - and will probably for some time remain the only, so large is the task - book to cover systematically the social structure of the whole of Europe, east and west, written from the perspective of a single pair of authors. It manages to be highly accessible to students while not compromising at all its seriousness and academic integrity. " Colin Crouch, University of WarwickVom Verlag:
This comprehensive textbook provides a thorough analysis of the nature of European societies across the expanded EU member states. Using a wealth of data, the authors compare the different dimensions of the territorial and social order of Europe and address a range of issues relating to Europeanisation and key topics such as inequality, migration, poverty, population and family, the labour market and education. Presented in a student friendly way, this book also helps unravel people's attitudes towards Europe, European integration and citizens of other European countries. It will be an essential read for under and post-graduate students and academics of sociology, European studies, social stratification, social policy and political sciences.
