Summary: Over the past 15 years, the project of advanced European integration has followed a complex secular and cosmopolitan agenda. As that agenda has evolved, however, so have various hard-line populist movements with goals diametrically opposed to the ideals of a harmonious European Union. Spearheaded by figures such as Jean-Marie Le Pen, the controversial leader of France's National Front party, these radical movements have become increasingly influential and, because of their philosophical affinities with fascism and national socialism--politically worrisome.

CHOICE Review

The title of this book gives barely a hint of its rich and complex content. Holmes, an anthropologist whose Cultural Disenchantments (1989) represents a particularly insightful analysis of the dissonances created at the interface of urban industrial and peasant societies, has shifted focus to the problems and promises accompanying the construction of a modern European identity. The result is one of the best and most accessible studies of the "culture" underpinning the European Union (EU). Holmes makes a compelling case that the founders of the EU shared a common political philosophy, and that this ideology remains dominant. He shows how a cluster of core principles--interdependence, solidarity (a social justice agenda), and subsidiarity (diversity and devolution)--are shaping a political and social order and its policies. But about half the book is devoted to a meticulous examination of political movements, some manifestly xenophobic, that reject the EU model. These organizations , including Jean-Marie Le Pen's Front National, mobilize on the basis of "integralist" positions that play to localism, romantic nationalism, and the values of a supposed traditional Europe. Highly recommended for all social scientists and policy professionals who work on European political and social issues. Graduate collections and above. O.
