This collection of essays focuses on the evolution of the relationship of the European Union to its Southern members. The broader implications of the incorporation of Southern Europeans into a German-French dominated organization as well as corollary problems related to the expanion of the European Union by admission of former members of the Soviet Bloc round out this important contribution to contemporary international and inter-European relations.

Also available in Portuguese: A Europa do Sul e a Construção da União Europeia, Lisbon, Imprensa de Ciência Sociais, 2005, 215 pages.
