Geburt Einer Neuen Welt 1918–1923
Der 1914 vom Zaun gebrochene Krieg, der bald globale Dimensionen annehmen sollte, bereitete der alten Welt ein Ende und ebnete auf ihren Trümmern den Weg in eine neue Epoche, die an Grausamkeit alles Dagewesene in den Schatten stellen sollte und die wir das „kurze zwanzigste Jahrhundert“ nennen.
The Future of Europe – V4 - Strength and Unity
The importance of national identity, the preservation of traditional Christian culture, the dan-ger of mass and illegal migration, the preservation of economic competitiveness or technologi-cal innovation, the challenges of artificial intelligence - these issues have never been so rele-vant in the European intellectual arena. The present volume contains edited versions of the presentations delivered at an international conference held in Budapest on May 23-24, 2018.
The Birth of a New World – 1918-1923
The global conflagration that erupted in 1914 exploded the old world and opened the way to a new, unprecedentedly cruel era – the 20th century. Early attempts to interpret the Great War described it as a clash between good and evil. That narrative is still shared by many. Mária Schmidt’s wide-ranging analysis attempts to transcend these diametrically-opposed explanations of the war. With a mere 100 years of hindsight, we can say that this book marks a real beginning. It will serve as a reference for many future studies.
