Editorial Reviews

'Mario Telò has produced a visionary and wide-ranging analysis of how a European Union foreign policy, consistent with European social practices and values, could contribute to the revival of a transatlantic partnership, a new multilateralism, and the solution of pressing global problems. For Americans, there could be no better introduction to progressive European thinking than Europe: A Civilian Power?' - Robert O. Keohane, Professor of International Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University, USA'Well documented and deftly juggling the various political theories currently doing the rounds, he casts a critical eye over events, highlighting areas of interest and shortcomings to expose long-term trends in the way the world system is evolving and the innovative role of the EU in this connection'. - Frederik Ronse, European Library'Political power and global order are the core topics of this book, which offers a deep analysis of the European Union's role in the international system after the end of bipolar confrontation.' - The International Spectator
