While European languages have been quite frequently studied with respect to cultural-historical, sociopolitical and word-form-oriented issues, the study by Joachim Grzega is the first monograph that deals intensively with the search for commonalities of European languages with respect to the use of word-forms, i.e. pragmalinguistic aspects. The book addresses basic general definitory questions (e.g. what is "European," what is "Eurolinguistic"?), it discusses and creates methodological approaches of qualitative and quantitative research, it compares working with naturally gathered (spoken and written) language data (e.g. Wikipedia, EU minutes, Facebook) and working with language data artificially elicited by questionnaires, and it makes suggestions on how the results of analyses on speech-acts, address terms, word-connotations and other communicative patterns could be interpreted. Grzega's volume includes numerous case studies related to synchronic, historical and applied europragmatics, transferring results into numerous figures (among them the map of the flight of the Europragmatic bumblebee, showing the distribution of 36 Europragmatic features).

This book examines the construction of Euroscepticism in civil society discourse, focusing on Turkey’s possible EU-membership, the ongoing political struggles between different political camps in Turkey and general Western discourse. Applying semi-structured qualitative interviews with Civil Society Organisation leaders and Critical Discourse Analysis, the study shows how civil society leaders evaluate Europe and the European Integration of Turkey. It appears that there are multiple Eurosceptical argumentation strategies in the discourses varying according to ideological background and pro-government and anti-government positioning.

Writing about changes in the notion of womanhood, Denise Riley examines, in the manner of Foucault, shifting historical constructions of the category of "women" in relation to other categories central to concepts of personhood: the soul, the mind, the body, nature, the social. Feminist movements, Riley argues, have had no choice but to play out this indeterminacy of women. This is made plain in their oscillations, since the 1790s, between concepts of equality and of difference. To fully recognize the ambiguity of the category of "women" is, she contends, a necessary condition for an effective feminist political philosophy.
