From this starting point the first essay shows how Europe became identified with Christendom in the fifteenth century and with civilization in the eighteenth, before being used by nineteenth-century reformers and reactionaries either to promote change or to defend the status quo.

Twentieth-century developments are the focus for discussion in the other two essays. A number of projects for Europe are examined against the background of the two world wars, consideration is given to recent trends towards political and economic integration and an assessment is offered of the contemporary relevance of the European idea.
