The Eurasian project and Europe, regional discontinuities and geopolitics, edited by David Lane, Vsevolod Samokhvalov

Considering the Eurasian project from a variety of historical, philosophical, political, economic and geo-political perspectives, this volume traces the birth, evolution and re-birth of Eurasian regionalism. It examines the historical and philosophical background of Eurasia and addresses the discursive construction of the Eurasian concept in the contemporary period, contrasting and comparing with the formation of the European Union. Looking afresh at the politics and economics of Eurasian integration in a global context, this book offers a highly topical assessment of the region's presence in the ideological agendas and nation-building programmes of its member states - Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus - and its geo-strategic relevance in world politics
