The current volume has been built out of texts which I have written over several years while working in the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology at the Polish Academy of Sciences on the European integration discourse. Therefore, its different parts were presented at international conferences and some of them published in collective volumes. Most of Chapters 1 and 7 were published in books edited by Josef Langer for Peter Lang publishing house (Niżnik, Józef, 2008, 2011a). Part of Chapter 2, has been published in a book edited by Marion Ellison for Policy Press (Niżnik, Józef, 2011b). Most of Chapter 4 has appeared in a book edited by Carlo Mongardini for Bulzoni Editore (Niżnik, Józef, 2002), and Chapter 6 in a book which I have edited for IFiS Publishers (Niżnik, Józef, 2006a). Some parts of Chapter 5 have been taken from my article published in the Polish Sociological Review (Niżnik, Józef, 2000). I would like to express my thanks to all the above publishers for their consent to include those fragments in the present publication.
