What is Europe up to
What is Europe up to? In what areas is it taking action? Is it meeting the expectations of its citizens? These are all legitimate questions in the run-up to the European elections, questions that, all too often, prompt ideological responses.Whos in charge of Europe? Such is the power-sharing within the Union, what with the Members of the European Parliament, the Barroso commission, the country holding the EU Presidency, the ministers of the member States, it is hard to ascertain the responsibility of a specific actor or institution.Comparisons with the United States or with France confirm that Europe remains different from a State. The comparison between what Europe is actually doing and what Europeans expect it to do, does expose a troubling discrepancy.Based on a strict assessment of the activities of the European Union, this work helps to better understand the policies of European institutions, their issues and priorities, and the way in which they take on board the concerns of its citizens.List of contributors: Sylvain Brouard, Giuseppe Ciavarini Azzi, Olivier Costa, Renaud Dehousse, Florence Deloche-Gaudez, Ana Mar Fernández, Emiliano Grossman, Sophie Jacquot, Nicolas Monceau.Without equivalent on a national or an international level, the Evaluating Europe series draws on innovative and previously unpublished data produced by the Observatory of European Institutions (OIE), set up by the Centre for European Studies at Sciences Po with the aim of giving fully-informed access to the European debate for all.
Euroscepticism Within the Eu Institutions
Since its origins, there have been competing views concerning the nature, scope and objectives of the process of integration and of the European Union. Attitudes towards Europe and European integration, both among political elites and citizens, have been much studied over the last 15 years. But there is no comprehensive analysis of these competing views of Europe at the supranational level. The existence of radically diverging views on the European political system within the EU's own institutions is problematic at both theoretical and practical levels. Little is known, however, about this phenomenon, its impact on the EU's agenda and policy-making as well as on constitutional reform. This book aims therefore at investigating the divergence in views about the European Union in order to lend insight into its consequences for the functioning of the EU and its institutions. It will focus on the main EU institutions, i.e. the Council, Commission, Parliament and Court but will also deal with the visions of various European elites on the EU. This book was originally published as a special issue of Journal of European Integration.

A History of the Modern Fact
How did the fact become modernity's most favored unit of knowledge? How did description come to seem separable from theory in the precursors of economics and the social sciences? Mary Poovey explores these questions in A History of the Modern Fact, ranging across an astonishing array of texts and ideas from the publication of the first British manual on double-entry bookkeeping in 1588 to the institutionalization of statistics in the 1830s. She shows how the production of systematic knowledge from descriptions of observed particulars influenced government, how numerical representation became the privileged vehicle for generating useful facts, and how belief—whether figured as credit, credibility, or credulity—remained essential to the production of knowledge. Illuminating the epistemological conditions that have made modern social and economic knowledge possible, A History of the Modern Fact provides important contributions to the history of political thought, economics, science, and philosophy, as well as to literary and cultural criticism.
How Natives Think
Examination of the construction and interpretation of culture and rationality in anthropology and history; historical and contemporary role of culture in western and Indigenous contexts; critique of the work of Obeyesekere and the deification of Cook in Hawaii; argues for the need to recognise and engage with cultural difference in the writing of colonial history; includes brief reference to Aborigines.
It is winter, somewhere in the United Kingdom, and an eight-year-old boy is removed from his home and family in the middle of the night. He learns that he is the victim of an extraordinary experiment. In an attempt to reform society, the government has divided the population into four groups, each representing a different personality type. The land, too, has been divided into quarters. Borders have been established, reinforced by concrete walls, armed guards and rolls of razor wire. Plunged headlong into this brave new world, the boy tries to make the best of things, unaware that ahead of him lies a truly explosive moment, a revelation that will challenge everything he believes in and will, in the end, put his very life in jeopardy ...

Migration Diasporas and Transnationalism
'. . . this book is a valuable resource which has collected together an important range of contributions, many of which may not be easy to track down for the individual scholar.' - Claire Dwyer, Progress in Human Geography '. . . this collection is a fine overview of contributions to an interesting and promising new research field, and it will be a good resource for professional scholars and especially for students in the field.' - Boris Slijper, Journal of International Migration and Integration This authoritative collection brings together the most significant papers by leading scholars in an increasingly important area of study. Social scientists and political analysts are becoming more and more aware of the importance of long-maintained or newly embellished links between post-migration communities and the societies from which they originate. Closely tied to this field is a renewed interest in 'diasporas' or globally dispersed groups whose collective experiences often draw on deep historical roots in more than one place.
