Böröcz, József and Kovács, Melinda and Engel-Di Mauro, Salvatore and Sher, Anna and Dancsi, Katalin and Kabachnik, Peter (2001) Empire's New Clothes: Unveiling EU-Enlargement. Central Europe Review e-books.
This is an edited volume, published in 2001, containing texts addressing the 'eastern enlargement' of the EU with the conceptual tools of postcolonial studies. Most of the papers analyze discursive practices of exclusion as they appear in official documents issued by various EU organs, speeches by the EU's key politicians and the program of an extreme-right party, currently in the government of an EU-member state.
