He has published several notable books on European cultural history. Povzetek This book explores the history of Europe from the Roman period to the present day. Fifteen centuries of history are viewed in terms of the European nations and of the relations by which they are linked. Europe can more accurately be termed the European nations, and these have continually torn each other apart while at the same time drawing closer together.
Frontiers have come and gone according to the religious, military, or economic alliances of the day. The book does not go into detail. Adopting a global approach, it seeks to make sense of history by drawing a pattern revolving around three attempts to reunite. The first reunification, by religion, was cemented between the 5th and 14th centuries under the aegis of the Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches. It was smashed sometime around the 15th century by a series of wars and denominationally divisive marriages.
A second reunification in about the mid 17th century was founded on a common culture of the secularised elites the Republic of Letters and the emergence of international law. The equilibrium thus created was, however, undermined by the ever more assertive expressions of nationalism that culminated in World War II. Since then a third reunification has been taking shape, laboriously, for although we are living in an international environment, politics remains, for the most part, confined to the level of the nation-state.
Democracy does not yet exist on a scale commensurate with the European Union. This book is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand the current deadlock, in which the determination to progress towards a more solidly united Europe is being stymied by the emphasis on distinguishing national characteristics as a shield against a so-called European threat.
