Employing this differentiated approach to cultural studies, the book suggests a fresh approach to the intertwining of political and religious agonies in the period 1914-1991. In fact, the long European civil war with two world wars and a cold war marked a paradigm shift decisively changing Europes attitudes and ways of relating to the world. What characterises Europe is that far from being formed by a one-track development of progress and emancipation, it has followed several tracks or fault lines, creating a number of dualities and contrasts in the European self-perception such as those between secularisation and religion, and between democratic and authoritarian forms of government.

The present book seeks to clarify how the European civil war arose, revolving, as it did, round the fundamental question: what should Europe be?
