Abstract:

"Just what is Europe today? Where does its territory end? What will its future be like? This book offers a surprising reply: Europe is not a continent with well-defined limits, but a single huge City. A City that embraces the most extreme differences, putting them in the midst of a few characteristics of the local space, sedimented by centuries of history. ... Using photographs, maps, interviews of a group of "prophets" of the European fate and reconnaissances in some of the most forward-looking European places, this book offers the image of Europe as an immense kaleidoscope, undergoing constant change owing to its inhabitants' self-organisation. With USE-Uncertain States of Europe, Multiplicity - an agency researching the urban condition - proposes a trip into the mysteries and resources of a continent that would seem to only reveal its true nature to those who choose to explore, from close up, its physical and social landscapes."--Jacket.
