The European Union's market integration project has dramatically altered economic activity around Europe. This book presents extensive evidence on how trade has increased, jobs have been created, and European business has been reorganized. However, changes in the economy have been accompanied by dramatic changes in how people from different societies interact. In this book Neil Fligstein argues provocatively that these changes have produced a truly transnational-European-society.

Neil Fligstein is the Class of 1939 Chancellor's Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley. His most recent books include The Architecture of Markets (Princeton University Press, 2001) and The Institutionalization of Europe (with Alec Stone Sweet and Wayne Sandholtz, Oxford University Press, 2001)
