The European Union's stalled expansion, the Euro deficit and emerging crises of economic and political sovereignty in Greece, Italy and Spain have significantly altered the image of the EU as a model of progressive civilization. However, despite recent events the EU maintains its international image as the paragon of European politics and global governance.

This book unites leading scholars on Europe and Empire to revisit the view of the European Union as an 'imperial' power. It offers a re-appraisal of the EU as empire in response to geopolitical and economic developments since 2007 and asks if the policies, practices, and priorities of the Union exhibit characteristics of a modern empire.

This text will be of key interest to students and scholars of the EU, European studies, history, sociology, international relations, and economics.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This outstanding book does many things. The book begins by connecting the...nineteenth-century critique of Hegel to the emergence of...analytic philosophy. The rejection of Hegel's philosophy...is then in turn connected to the contemporary emergences of both a political science based on methodological positivism and a reading of Hegel...that separates his political philosophy from its logical and metaphysical antecedents... [It] offers a reading of Hegel's Encyclopaedia Logic as an attempt to resolve the ancient problem of universals...[and] provides an original account of Hegel's political philosophy [as a] 'resolution to the problem of universals in political terms'... [Goodfield] concludes the book by arguing that...our [political] 'responses to metaphysical problems are inescapably metaphysical'. Thus, it is only through a return to Hegel...that a war of position might be waged.... Goodfield's phenomenal book deserves to be read closely and taken seriously by philosophers and political scientists, as well as anyone interested in Hegel and his influence on contemporary philosophical discussion."

Matthew Smetona, Assistant Professor in the Intellectual Heritage Program at Temple University, USA.
