Transnational Identities: Becoming European in the EU. Edited by Richard K. Herrmann, Thomas Risse, and Marilynn B. Brewer. New York: Rowman & Littlefield, 2004. 328p. $75.00 cloth, $29.95 paper.

The extent to which people in European countries are becoming more European in their identity is the subject of this very timely book, which presents important new empirical data on the Europeanization of identities. A variety of approaches, ranging from social psychology and political science to ethnographic and discourse analysis, explores the many ways European identities are being transformed. The contributors want to establish the degree to which both citizens and elites identify with Europe and how such forms of identification relate to other identities, in particular, national identities. The aim of the volume is less theoretical and philosophical abstraction than to devise middle-range approaches to measuring transnational identity and to assess its impact and significance.
