This is Europe

ByMark Schalekamp

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The European Union is one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken. Why is Europe so important, and at the same time, why is no one really interested in it? Dutch writer Mark Schalekamp set out to find answers to these and other questions and travelled to all 28 of the European Union’s member states to interview eight people in each capital city: a doctor, a police officer, a hairdresser, an entrepreneur, an artist, an immigrant, a sex worker and a local celebrity. What is Europe? Who feels like a European? What do people think of their own country and its relationship with Europe? How do we differ from one another, what are the similarities, and what makes us unique? Schalekamp’s colourful, humorous account of his journey provides an open view of Europe seen not from a political point of view, but through the eyes of an inquisitive European. It is the story of the people’s Europe.
