What People are Saying About This

John Hall

John A. Hall, Professor of Sociology, McGill University

Ernst Schulin

Ernst Schulin, Frankfurter Allgemeine

. . . [A] lucid account of a central theme in European history . . . The author concludes by warning us of the dangers of the mass neurosis and destructive urges contained within the impossible and illusory concept of unity of nation, language and territory. He is uncertain, given this danger, whether Europe indeed has a future.
