Summary
  • "This pioneering study investigates how the European Union has tried to attract popular support through policies in culture, education and the audiovisual sector, and through the invention of political symbols and rituals - from the attempted 'correction' of history textbooks and a 'European dimension' in national school curricula and audiovisual productions to the European flag and anthem. Informed by social constructivist theory, the book accounts for the sporadic successes of these policies but also for their frequent failures and for the resistance they sparked inside many member states. These findings bear out some of the broader difficulties of developing the Union into a focus of political identification and category of belonging for its citizens."
  • "This is a ground-breaking inquiry that combines a sophisticated analytical framework with extensive fieldwork and reliance on primary sources. It is essential reading for those concerned with the problems of identity, legitimacy and popular consent in the European Union. More broadly, it makes a timely and original contribution to the burgeoning literature on the 'symbolic construction of Europe'."--Jacket
