Based on fresh research in the archives of multiple international organizations and European countries it explores the "hidden integration" of Europe – forms of integration that were not always visible, but affected the citizens of Europe in their everyday lives. Richly illustrated and engagingly written, the book de-centers the present-day European Union in a new long-term understanding of European integration.
The book is part of a series "Making Europe" edited by Philip Scranton and Johan Schot.
