The end of the East-West conflict, the establishment of the Single European Market and the ongoing economic decline of many African countries have considerably changed the framework for European-African relations. The European Community would be able to assert a stronger influence on African governments today if the major member states shared common policy goals and coordinated their policies. However, European economic and strategic interest in Africa is rapidly diminishing, exemplified by the lowering of Europe's diplomatic presence in Africa and the uncertain future of institutional links such as the CFA Franc Zone. Rising "Afropessimism" could also be seen as an opportunity freeing European-African relations from the pursuit of narrow self-interest and outdated cultural ties and paving the way for the harmonization and coordination of African policies within Europe. The essays in this book focus on the interests of individual European states (France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Portugal) in maintaining close relations with Africa and in harmonizing their approaches within the European Union as a whole.

Europe and the British Geographical Imagination, 1760-1830 explores what literate British people understood by the word 'Europe' in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Was Europe unified by shared religious heritage? Where were the edges of Europe? Was Europe primarily a commercial network or were there common political practices too? Was Britain itself a European country? While intellectual history is concerned predominantly with prominent thinkers, Paul Stock traces the history of ideas in non-elite contexts, offering a detailed analysis of nearly 350 geographical reference works, textbooks, dictionaries, and encyclopaedias, which were widely read by literate Britons of all classes, and can reveal the formative ideas about Europe circulating in Britain: ideas about religion; the natural environment; race and other theories of human difference; the state; borders; the identification of the 'centre' and 'edges' of Europe; commerce and empire; and ideas about the past, progress, and historical change. By showing how these and other questions were discussed in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British culture, Europe and the British Geographical Imagination, 1760-1830 provides a thorough and much-needed historical analysis of Britain's enduringly complex intellectual relationship with Europe.

Taking a wide-angled view of the continent that embraces northern and eastern Europe as well as the city systems of the Mediterranean and western Europe, it addresses important debates ranging from the natureof urban survival in the post-Roman era to the position of the European city in a globalizing world.

The Language of Continent Allegories in Baroque Central Europe

As pictorial language they were interwoven with text, dogmas, narratives and stereotypes. Thus the authors of this volume inquire what the allegories of the four continents actually meant to people living in the Baroque age.

The iconography of the four continents dates back to 16th and early 17th centuries, at a time when Europe's vision of the world was changed dramatically by discovery and conquest of the New World. Its peak of dissemination was reached in the 18th century. The late Baroque claims a special role for two reasons: The first is the large number of reproductions and applications during this period, the second is the multifaceted significance these allegories enjoyed. They could be inserted into religious and liturgical settings as well as into political language or that of the history of civilization and mankind. "Language" in this sense means that the continent allegories were less the object of an art historical interpretation than being considered a formative part of religious, liturgical, political, historical and other discourses. As pictorial language they were interwoven with text, dogmas, narratives and stereotypes. Thus the authors of this volume inquire what the allegories of the four continents actually meant to people living in the Baroque age. Die Ikonografie der vier Erdteile geht auf das 16. und 17. Jahrhundert zuruck. Ihre Entstehung verdankt sich der Entdeckung Amerikas und den damit einhergehenden Veranderungen in Europas Bild von der Welt. Rasch fand die Ikonografie Verbreitung und erreichte mit der Eroberung der Dorfkirche im 18. Jahrhundert eine bis heute einzigartige Dichte in Zentraleuropa. Ihre Verwendung reichte von religiosen und liturgischen Kontexten uber die politische Bildsprache bis hin zu zivilisationsgeschichtlichen Narrationen. Die Erdteilallegorien "sprechen" als formative Teile religioser, liturgischer, politischer, historischer und anderer Diskurse. Als Bildsprache wurden sie mit Texten, Dogmen, Erzahlungen und Stereotypen verknupft. Die Beitrage dieses Bandes gehen aus unterschiedlichen historisch-kulturwissenschaftlichen Perspektiven der Frage nach, welche Bedeutung die Erdteilallegorien fur die Menschen des 18. Jahrhunderts hatten.
