European politicians, authors, and historians analyze in this volume the potential scope for a European history book written from a European point of view. The first stirrings and early initiatives that go back to the 1960s are considered, as is Basic Research by Frederic Delouche and his team of authors. The problems in store for anyone who is attempting to sail the agitated waters of Europe's contemporary history are evident. This book provides an outline of concrete approaches that might well prove helpful for the actual realization of a history of Europe.
