Beschreibung:

This collection of essays suggests new ways of looking at the intertwining of political and religious agonies in the period 1914-1991. The long 'European civil war' revealed that Europe, far from being formed by a one-track progression, has followed several tracks or fault lines, leading to a number of contrasts in European self-perception.
