In this volume, a group of distinguished scholars from a range of disciplines and geographical backgrounds reflect on the centrality of the recent European experience to the global community today. The book looks at the new Europe that is emerging in the wake of the geopolitical seachange which occurred on the continent at the end of the 1980s.
The contributors seek to open a variety of perspectives, including those of culture and history, on today’s rapidly changing European scene. They examine in detail the process of transition and internal realities confronting post-communist governments in Eastern and Central Europe. Their provocative essays also look at the role of Europe in the new global economy, the new regional alignments that are emerging, and other key questions about the continent in the emerging world order.
