The author offers a rich and reflective interpretation of the current world scene in terms of the historical evolution of the European states-system. It is his well-argued conclusion that in World War II the "collapse of the traditional European system became an irrevocable fact. What is commonly called the 'historic Europe' is dead and beyond resurrection."
