Using different perspectives and various approaches, this collection of diagnostic texts aims at presenting all the possible faces of the contemporary Nation-State. Based on political science methodology, this volume is devoted to both theory and practice. The structure of the book is unconventional. The issues presented are extremely contextual, subject to an ongoing discussion and mostly unpredictable. From the scientific point of view, the territorial differentiation in the traditional uniform of the Nation-State is simply reconfigured and reshaped due to the new logic of internal market competition.

The book (...) organizes in a harmonic frame a wide research concerning many complex strictly interdependent issues. The analysis is enriched by a sharp conclusive reinterpretation of the concept of the Nation-State. The presence of well integrated approaches (...) expresses the great intellectual richness of the volume. (Adriano Giovannelli, Universita degli Studi di Genova)
The monograph presents an ambitious (...) analysis of the challenges currently facing European States. (...) I found the collection to offer a set of perspectives that are equally challenging and refreshing. (Daniel Wincott, Cardiff University)
