OverviewIn this series of lectures we will examine the development of Europe since the Second World War by means of six biographical studies of leading statesmen – three of them French and three German. Each lecture will not only examine a particular career, but also themes related to the integration and security of Europe, and the conflicting pressures of national interest and European unity. It is intended that a better understanding of the history of Europe since the war will illuminate the current political, economic crisis affecting all European states and institutions.
