Product Overview

Governing Europe is the first book to systematically link Michel Foucaults hypotheses on power and governmentality with the study of European integration. Through a series of empirical encounters that spans the fifty-year history of European integration, it explores both the diverse political dreams that have framed means and ends of integration and the political technologies that have made Europe a calculable, administrable domain. The book illustrates how a genealogy of European integration differs from conventional approaches. By suspending the assumption that we already know what/where Europe is, it opens a space for analysis where we can ask: how did Europe come to be governed as this and not that? The themes covered by this book include: * the different constructions of Europe within discourses of modernization, democratization, insecurity and governance* the imprint of modernism, liberalism, ordoliberalism, neoliberalism and crime on the identity of the European Community/European Union* the historical relationship between European government and specific technologies of power, technologies as diverse as planning, price control, transparency and benchmarking. *Author: Walters William/ Walters, William *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 180 *Publication Date: 2006/11/21 *Language: English *Dimensions: 6.14 x 9.21 x 0.38 inches
