John McCormick, Professor, Department of Political Science, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis.
"deliberately provocative and enticingly concise... [McCormick] is the most articulate and politically informed of a new breed of "Euro-prophets" engaged in locating and promoting the principles underlying the European project." - William Biebuyck, Journal of Contemporary European Studies
"a timely attempt to understand the uniqueness of the European project...Anyone willing to embark on the quest for a positive definition of 'Europeanism' will find McCormick's book fruitful reading." - Alexander Strelkov, Journal of Common Market Studies
"This is an important contribution to the European integration literature specifically because of its comprehensive examination of almost all European values. The
book addresses how these individual aspects and components come together to form a collective vision." - Meltem Mütüler-Baç, West European Politics
