Appeared in print on 23.09.2010
Europe is full of small states and its library shelves carry a vast amount of literature about individual small countries. Yet, according to the editors of “Small states in Europe”, political scientists and scholars of international relations have neglected small states as a group and have made little comparative study of the challenges they face or of the interests and strategies they pursue. This is the gap that the book aims to fill.
