Europe is one of the defining issues of out times. Politically, economically, legally and culturally, it is a source of division to some and inspiration for others. This text contains essays written to celebrate the centenary of the British Academy, one of the country's leading academic institutions for social sciences and the humanities.

The central theme is Britain's contribution to the Europe of the 21st century and it is approached in an interdisciplinary way from the different angles of law, politics, economics and the humantities.
