    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. Table of Contents: Introduction: Empire and coloniality in the "Eastern Enlargement" of the European Union, by József Böröcz; The Fox and the Raven: the European Union and Hungary renegotiate the margins of Europe, by József Böröcz; The enduring national-state: NATO-EU relations, EU-enlargement and the reapportionment of the Balkans, by Salvatore Engel-diMauro; Shedding light on the quantitative other: The EU's discourse in the Commission Opinions of 1997, by Melinda Kovács and Peter Kabachnik; Putting down and putting off: the EU's discursive strategies in the 1998 and 1999 follow-up Reports, by Melinda Kovács; A Di-vision of Europe: The European Union enlarged, by Anna Sher; The Austrian Freedom Party's Colonial Discourse in the context of EU-Enlargement, by Katalin Dancsi.
