To mark the UK launch, Luuk enters in conversation with Tony Barber (Financial Times) at University College London on Thursday 21 March; on Friday 22, he gives a seminar at the London School of Economics. The week after, he will speak at the IIEA in Dublin and deliver the Jean Monnet Lecture at Maastricht University.

In advance endorsements, European Council president Donald Tusk called it “quite simply the most insightful book on Europe’s politics today”. Professor of European Law Bruno De Witte (EUI) enjoyed how it “combines the inside knowledge of a participant in the theatre of European politics with the critical distance of the political theorist”.

Alarums & Excursions is published by Agenda Publishing; the translation has been co-financed by the Dutch Foundation for Literature and the Leiden Europa Instituut.
