Summary
Offering a confrontation of the uncritical choice of the ''nation-state'' as a unit of analysis in postwar social science, this book utilises specially collected data from 14 regions across five European states to explore how citizens define and pursue collective goals at regional scale as well as at the scale of the ''nation-state''. It shows that regional institutions, actors and processes have transformed the state, in many ways 'de-nationalizing' it, and recasting it as a more complex form of political organisation, one that needs to respond to the demands of distinctive regional political communities as well as the political community as organized at the state-level. What comes 'after the nation-state' is, in other words, not the regional disintegration of the state or the emergence of a 'Europe of the Regions', but rather the consolidation of multi-levelled statehood
