About the Author:

Maurice Roche is lecturer in sociology at the University of Sheffield, and teaches undergraduate modules on the Sociology of the EU, Leisure, Policy and Society, and the Sociology of Popular Culture, as well as postgraduate modules on Global Social Policy and International Childhood Studies.

He has authored and contributed to a number of titles, including Mega-Events and Modernity: Olympics and Expos in the Growth of Global Culture (Routledge, 2000), Europe and Cosmopolitanism (Liverpool University Press, 2007) and The Handbook of Nations and Nationalism (SAGE, 2006), as well as writing articles for journals such as Citizenship Studies, Time and Society and Cultural Policy.

Review:

'This is a major and much needed sociological analysis of Europe.

Roche captures very well the emerging shape of European society in all

its complexity. It is an immensely readable book and will undoubtedly be a standard work of reference
Gerard Delanty
Professor of Sociology and Social & Political Thought, University of Sussex

'Maurice Roche has made an arresting case for taking the sociology of Europe seriously. In a lucid and penetrating book he both invites scholarly debate with his arguments and provides an exemplary starting-point for a new generation of students
Professor Philip Schlesinger
Director, Centre for Cultural Policy Research, University of Glasgow
