summary

This book is not intended merely for historians, it will be of interest to anyone who likes to see history not just as a vivid mosaic of events, but rather as a complex process full of contradictions. Building on his lifelong research activities, the scholar believes that historians should not merely tell interesting stories and disclose what is hidden in archives, but that they should also explain the major historical transformations from which our present era has developed. The twenty essays included in this book seek the causal relations that were related to these transformations. History cannot be limited to national history, but it must be explained in the European context. It also includes a reflection on the reasons for the uneven pace of changes on the European territory.
