The introductory chapter spells out the major arguments of the book, defines the basic terms used, and explains the genesis, structure, and the theoretical context of the book. Two contrasting models of the emerging EU system are identified: a Westphalian superstate and a neo-medieval empire. It explains why other possible alternatives are not considered, and the difference between a neo-Westphalian and neo-medieval type of empire.

Keywords:   superstate, empire, European Union
