Christian Democracy and the Origins of European Union (New Studies in European History) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a major new study of the role of European Christian democratic parties in the making of the European Union. Based on extensive archival research, it radically re-conceptualises European integration in long-term historical perspective as the outcome of partisan competition of political ideologies and parties and their guiding ideas for the future of Europe. Wolfram Kaiser takes a comparative approach to political Catholicism in the nineteenth century, Catholic parties in interwar Europe and Christian democratic parties in postwar Europe and studies these parties' cross-border contacts and coordination of policy-making. He shows how well-networked party elites, by intensifying their cross-border communication and coordinating their political tactics and policy-making in government, ensured that the origins of European Union were predominately Christian democratic, with considerable long-term repercussions for the present-day EU. This is a major contribution to the new transnational history of Europe and to the history of European integration.
