The European Union is becoming the most important political and economic entity in the lives of ordinary European citizens. Europe and the EU, however, do not amount to the same thing, because the European Union is a historical conjunction of events and choices. The minor Europe: idea and construction therefore does not only focus on the history of Europe, but also on the meaning ascribed in the past to the term ‘Europe’ Topics covered include foundations of European cultural heritage and the European self-image in relation to the rest of the world.
