Despite the growing interest in general European history, the
European dimension is surprisingly absent from the writing of
contemporary history. In most countries, the historiography on the
20th century continues to be dominated by national perspectives.
Although there is cross-national work on specific topics such as
occupation or resistance, transnational conceptions and narratives
of contemporary European history have yet to be worked out. This
volume focuses on the development of a shared conception of recent
European history that will be required as an underpinning for
further economic and political integration so as to make lasting
cooperation on the old continent possible. It tries to overcome the
traditional national framing that ironically persists just at a
time when organized efforts to transform Europe from an object of
debate to an actual subject have some chance of succeeding in
making it into a polity in its own right.
