Heikki Mikkeli charts the history of the idea of Europe and European identity. The first part introduces the various attempts to unify Europe from antiquity to the European Union. In the second part the relationship of Europe with America and Russia is considered, as well as the ambivalent role of Central Europe. The possibility of a common European identity is also discussed; a theme which may have an impact on the ways European history is written in the future.Über den Autor:
