100 Books on Europe to be Remembered

The owls at the European Parliamentary Research Service have recently compiled an excellent list of ‘100 Books on Europe to be Remembered’. The list includes a summary of each book, a biography of the author and in some cases, access to the full text. You’ll see many familiar names there, including a number of current and former UACES members. And yes, there are 109 books in the list…

One Response to 100 Books on Europe to be Remembered

  1. avatar david says:
