The New Old World looks at the history of the European Union, the core continental countries within it, and the issue of its further expansion into Asia. It opens with a consideration of the origins and outcomes of European integration since the Second World War, and how today’s EU has been theorized across a range of contemporary disciplines. It then moves to more detailed accounts of political and cultural developments in the three principal states of the original Common Market–France, Germany and Italy. A third section explores the interrelated histories of Cyprus and Turkey that pose a leading geopolitical challenge to the Community. The book ends by tracing ideas of European unity from the Enlightenment to the present, and their bearing on the future of the Union. The New Old World offers a critical portrait of a continent now increasingly hailed as a moral and political example to the world at large.

Review:

“A hugely ambitious and panoramic political book.”—Andy Beckett, Guardian

“As insightful, combative and invigorating as its illustrious predecessors.”—Mark Mazower, Nation

“Anderson is among the most insightful and policy-relevant analysts of modern Europe.”—Andrew Moravcsik, Foreign Affairs

“Fascinating.”—Glyn Morgan, Dissent

“European pieties go under the knife.”—John Lloyd, Financial Times

“A magisterial view of the evolution of the European Union.”—Anne McElvoy, New Statesman

“Necessary reading for anyone seeking a critical understanding of the EU.”—Socialist Studies

“In the current climate of Euro-conformism reflected in (mostly technocratic and government-funded) conferences and symposia about the future of Europe and the European Union, Perry Anderson has attempted to open up a democratic, lively public debate about the political and economic directions European countries are taking.”—Nata a Kova?evi?, Mediations

“A scintillating display of fireworks.”—Times Higher Educational Supplement

“Vast and sometimes brilliant.”—Economist

“Engaging, but eccentric ... Anderson is perceptive, and scathing ... with a wealth of argument and illustration.”—Jonathan Sumption, Spectator

Book Description Verso Books, United Kingdom, 2009. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book offers a magisterial analysis of Europe s development since the end of the Cold War. A major work of modern history and political analysis, The New-Old World punctures both domestic and American myths about continental Europe. Surveying the post-Cold War trajectory of European power and the halting progress towards social and economic integration, Perry Anderson draws out the connections between the EU s eastward expansion, a foreign policy largely subservient to America s, and the popular rejection of the European Constitution. As a neoliberal economic project, pushed forward by a succession of centrist governments, the European Union cannot afford to allow its peoples a free choice that might dash elite schemes of a post-national democracy. Anderson explores Hayek s suggestion that protecting a market economy might require exactly this kind of inter-state structure, out of reach of popular opposition. With landmark chapters on France, Germany, Italy and Turkey, and a wide-ranging survey of current theories of the Union, The New-Old World offers an iconoclastic portrait of a continent that is now being increasingly hailed as a moral and political exemplar for the world at large.
