Examining contemporary cultural and political changes in Europe as they are reflected in the region's borderlands, this in-depth analysis combines the classical heritage of boundary studies with a profound understanding of the social construction of borders. The book employs a rich variety of perspectives on globalization, the rise of national and ethnic identities, contemporary European integration, and the enlargement of the EU. The contributors pay particular attention to the role of geographical scale, identity, history, and social and economic contexts in the dynamic evolution of European borderlands. Throughout, the book explores how borderlands are experienced by ordinary people and employed by institutional actors in charge of cross-border cooperation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A valuable collection of essaysssss -- Brian Graham, University of Ulster
The many cases dealt with in this book are interesting and all of them contribute to a better understanding of the problems of borders and border regions. I would recommend this book not only to researchers involved in these kinds of studies, but also to policy makers and others interested in borders in the broad sense of the word. * Regional Studies *
This well-edited volume holds a selection of borderland studies examining the changing role of borders in Europe attempting to integrate aspects of economic and political life while expanding its influence eastward. -- Brian W. Blouet, The College of William and Mary * Professional Geographer *
Valuable as both a general record of the creation and functioning of Euroregions and as a critical research document on the contrasting structures and processes evident in different regions. The approach is original and the scholarship is of a very high order. -- David Knight, University of Guelph
