Jacobs' EU Guide Book: The Landmark Sites of European Integration (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


Jacobs' EU Guide Book has been created for:

visitors to the EU institutions, museums, historic houses and other places of memory

people working for or with the EU who want to see the "big picture"

students of European history, politics and EU affairs

armchair travellers interested in a different perspective on Europe from the usual national guide books

The book is illustrated throughout with 370 mostly colour photographs. It introduces historic personalities and the big themes of EU history, and it includes maps of the EU quarters of Luxembourg, Strasbourg and Brussels. And while the main focus of the book is on the EU, the broader history of European integration is also referenced to provide a wider context.

Introductory sections include maps of the EU quarters of Luxembourg, Strasbourg and Brussels, an overview of the scope of the book and a foreword by Pat Cox, former President of the European Parliament.

Part I of the book describes the history and main personalities of European integration including topics such as the search for a European capital.

Part II is the main part of the book, the A-Z gazetteer of places. It is organised by country, covering every EU member state plus the UK and Switzerland.

For each country there are the "places of memory" and the "places of work".

The "places of memory" include the homes of the founding fathers, other pioneers of European integration, and later key figures; locations associated with landmark events; and other places of particular resonance such as the early headquarters of EU institutions or sites associated with the federalist movement.

The "places of work" include not just the major institutional buildings in Brussels, Luxembourg and Strasbourg but the dozens of EU agencies dispersed around the member states as well as the EU Houses in national capitals.

Annexes include an Index of People and an Index of Places.

"This is a guide book with a difference ... about discovery and all the joy and delight that this holds as our shared European experience is revealed through the places and people traced in its pages". From the foreword by Pat Cox, former President of the European Parliament
