Reviews

'An essential reading for anyone interested in a deeper understanding of how crises affect regionalism throughout the world, with a particular emphasis on the long-term implications of the current European crisis.' Amitav Acharya, American University, Washington, DC, USA, and UNESCO Chair in Transnational Challenges and Governance

'Crises have been part of the process of supra-national regional integration starting with the one in Europe. Will the contemporary economic-financial crisis prove to be 'good' or 'bad' for the regionalisms of the world? Will crises compel regions to adapt by increasing or decreasing their mutual commitments? This book is a path-breaking effort to answer these crucial questions with regard to Europe, Africa, South America and East Asia.' Philippe C. Schmitter, European University Institute, Florence, Italy and Central European University, Budapest, Hungary

'Like no one else before, this outstanding book brings together two of the most important traits of the 21st century: crises and regionalism. Moreover it manages to bridge the unfortunate divide between European integration studies and comparative regionalism. Simply a 'mustread' for anyone who wants to understand contemporary world affairs.' Fredrik Söderbaum, School of Global Studies, University of Gothenburg, Sweden

'This book provides an innovative perspective on regional integration and shows how crises can open up new spaces for action. It provides invaluable insights on the future of Europe and for students of regionalism across the globe.' Martin Holland, National Centre for Research on Europe, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand

'This volume is valuable to academics and students with an interest in the Euro crisis and its consequences for regionalism, as well as in the state of integrative efforts in Africa, South America and East Asia and their responses to key challenges both internal and external in nature.' - Matthew Doidge, ANZJES

'This book has the great merit of having explored the phenomenon of regionalism from an unconventional perspective (comparative and in relation to crises) and of having asked a number of good questions, of which there was a desperate need.' - Sonia Lucarelli, The International Spectator
