A Grand Illusion? An Essay on Europe

Synopsis

A Grand Illusion? An Essay on Europe by Tony Judt

I am enthusiastically European; no informed person could seriously wish to return to the embattled, mutually antagonistic circle of suspicious and introverted nations that was the European continent in the quite recent past. But it is one thing to think an outcome desirable, quite another to suppose it is possible. It is my contention that a truly united Europe is sufficiently unlikely for it to be unwise and self-defeating to insist upon it. I am thus, I suppose, a Euro-pessimist. -Tony Judt

Reviews

One of the most prescient texts on the European Union...[Tony Judt] maps out everything we are witnessing today from the slow erosion of the welfare state to the return of nationalisms... -Rachel Donadio,The New York Times
