The Problem of Comparison in Comparative Regionalism
This four-volume set has been created to capture and organise 60 years of research and policy discourse on regional integration and regionalism. Since the mid-1980s there has been an explosion of various forms of regionalist projects on a global scale. The widening and deepening of the European Union (EU) is the most pervasive example, but regionalism is also made visible through the revitalization or expansion of many other regional projects around the world. With a strong global focus on the field, this new major work will be of great value to the international academic community, collating and presenting seminal articles written by scholars from around the globe. The volumes are structured chronologically, reflecting the evolution of the subject: Volume One: 1940s-1960s Classical Regional Integration; Volume Two: 1970s-1980s Revisions of Classical Regional Integration; Volume Three: 1990s- The New Regionalism; Volume Four: 2000-2010 Comparative Regionalism.
