Abstract: The concept of territorial cohesion emerged from debates on the territorial structure of the European Union that took place in the 1990s and led to the adoption of the European
Spatial Development Perspective (ESDP) in 1999. The core argument in the edited collection “Territorial Cohesion and the European Model of Society” is that the concept of territorial cohesion is the spatial expression of the European model of society and its concern with equity, regional diversity and sustainability. The contributing
authors put territorial cohesion in its political, cultural and socioeconomic context and trace how the concept travelled through the vagaries of the European policy-making
process. The book follows an earlier volume, also edited by Andreas Faludi, that aimed to familiarize a US audience with the European approach to transnational planning.
