Europäische Standortsbestimmung in Politik Und Wirtschaft
Europäische Standortsbestimmung in Politik Und Wirtschaft
By Hans Bachmann
Polygraphischer Verlag, 1955, 185 pp

In this intelligent and ambitious book, a Swiss economics professor concisely sets forth his appraisal of Europe at mid-century, and then turns to the perspectives of the medium and long-run future. He treats broad themes such as the decline of Europe's world power, the condition of economic liberalism, and man versus the state, and also deals with concrete political problems of Europe's internal and external relations, colonialism, the German question, European unity, and the possibilities of coexistence with the U.S.S.R.
