Since the Baltic nations joined the European Union, debates about reorganizing post-Soviet republics have grown increasingly heated. How do citizens in the Baltic and South Caucasian states cope with EU expansion and the feeling of existing simultaneously "inside" and "outside" Europe? Based on ethnographies and archival work, "Representations on the Margins of Europe" offers new insights into shifts in national identity, cultural geography, and symbolic boundaries. This exploration of local responses to Europe's new hegemony will appeal to anyone interested in anthropology, history, and politics.
