The European Cultural Foundation has just published my essay “Between pessimism and hope: Europe as seen from the Balkans” in The Dwarfing of Europe? Perspectives from the Balkans, Belarus, the Middle East and Asia, (ECF, Amsterdam 2013). Here's a quote from the back cover:
It is high time to boost and broaden the debate on Europe by focusing on culture, and who better to turn to for an honest view of Europe from the outside than our neighbours? In this first volume of The Dwarfing of Europe? series, thinkers from the Balkans, Belarus, the Middle East and Asia reflect on the continent’s identity, triumphs and foibles. Their insights can help us craft new narratives for Europe.
