Learn About The Elements Of European Civilization

The history of Europe covers the peoples, societies, and civilizations that have been a part of the continent of Europe. Europe is generally considered as having emerged from a series of ancient cultures. Scholars debate whether contemporary humans met any other hominins besides Neanderthals during this period. Human activities such as agriculture and animal husbandry were introduced to Europe from Southwest Asia about 10,500 years ago by immigrants from Anatolia. People are used to dividing modern Europe into Eastern and Western. Western Europe is a loose term for the collection of countries in the westernmost region of Europe. It Includes Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain. Eastern Europe is made up of the countries that used to be occupied by the Soviet Union. These include Belarus; Bulgaria; the Czech Republic; Estonia; Hungary; Latvia; Lithuania; Poland; Romania; Slovakia and Ukraine.

The European Union – An Introduction

The European Union now is a unique political and economic union of 28 member states that are located predominantly in Europe. The EU traces its origins to the European Coal and Steel Community and the European Economic Community, formed by six countries in 1958. Since then, the EU has grown to become a major international force in world politics with considerable diplomatic, cultural, economic, military, and scientific influence. The EU has developed a single market through a standardized system of laws that apply to all member states in those matters, as well as others. The modern Europe books in our library provide a brief overview of European history from prehistoric times up until today's world. It contains information about important events such as the rise and fall of empires, wars, and other conflicts, as well as important figures such as kings, queens, politicians, and religious figures that have shaped this region throughout the ages.

All The Shadows Of The Past

The end of World War II brought about the establishment of what became known as the Iron Curtain between Western and Eastern Europe; this dividing line was made more or less permanent by the Soviet Union's occupation zone. The end of the Cold War in 1991 resulted in eastern central European countries joining NATO, while western central European countries joined the European Union. Studying the past, as known, is the best way to learn about the future. The great events of European history are well-known, but it's often the smaller details that make these stories impressive and memorable.
