Migrants have stood at the heart of modern Europe's experience, whether trying to escape danger, to find a better life or as a result of deliberate policy, whether moving from the countryside to the city, or between countries, or from outside the continent altogether. Peter Gatrell's powerful new book is the first to bring these stories together into one place. He creates a compelling narrative bracketed by two nightmarish periods: the great convulsions following the fall of the Third Reich and the mass attempts in the 2010s by migrants to cross the Mediterranean into Europe. The Unsettling of Europe is a new history of the continent, charting the ever-changing arguments about the desirability or otherwise of migrants and their central role in Europe's post-1945 prosperity. Gatrell is as fascinating on the giant movements of millions (such as the epic waves of German migration) to that of much smaller groups, such as the Karelians, Armenians, Moluccans or Ugandan Asians. Above all he has written a book that makes the reader deeply aware of the many extraordinary journeys taken by countless individuals in pursuit of work, safety and dignity, all the time. This is a landmark book on a subject that, decade by decade, will always haunt Europe.

East Central Europe After the Warsaw Pact

Michta reviews the security policies of Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Hungary following the collapse of communism in East Central Europe. He focuses on the threats of regional instability, the advent of military reform programs in these countries, and the nature of their foreign policy vis-a-vis the Soviet Union and the West. By concentrating on the security of a region that is moving rapidly to rejoin the West, Michta provides new insights on the area likely to become an eastern periphery of a new Europe, and he suggests the challenges which are likely to threaten regional security for the remainder of the decade.

Drawing on Council of Europe material and his long experience of teaching and observing history in schools, the author attempts a definition of 'Europe', asks whether Europeans have anything in common and what is new about the 'New Europe'. In particular, he asks why young Europeans should learn history at all. If so, what kind and how? For what, and whose, purposes? And who decides what pupils learn? Teaching History in the New Europe was prompted by an influential symposium entitled 'History Teaching in the New Europe'. It will be invaluable to all those who are concerned with teaching history, as well as having an interest in European history and culture.

Over the past two decades the major international corporations have become industrial lobbyists within the European Community, to such an extent that they pose a threat to democracy. In turn the EC has been very receptive to the political agenda of corporate interest groups, in particular to the notion of making Europe a free trade zone.

This comprehensive, well-balanced historical survey of medieval Europe—from Roman imperial provinces to the Renaissance—covers all aspects of the history (political, literary, religious, intellectual, etc.) with a focus on social and political themes. It presents a complete picture of the complex process by which an ecumenical civilization that once ringed the basin of the Mediterranean Sea, evolved into three other distinctive civilizations—Latin Europe, Greek Eastern Europe and Asia Minor, and Islam. A six-part organization outlines late Mediterranean antiquity and early northern Europe; two heirs of the ancient world; the early Middle Ages; Christendom: authority and enterprise, 950-1100; culture and society in the high Middle Ages, 1100-1325; and Christendom and Europe, 1325-1519. For anyone interested in the history of Europe and the Middle Ages.
