 Europe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Europe has a long history of cultural and economic achievement, starting as far back as the Palaeolithic, although this is true for the rest of the Old World as well.
Europe is geologically and geographically a peninsula or subcontinent, forming the westernmost part of Eurasia.
Having lived side-by-side with agricultural peoples for millennia, Europe's animals and plants have been profoundly affected by the presence and activities of man. With the exception of Scandinavia and northern Russia, few areas of untouched wilderness are today to be found in Europe, except for different natural parks.

 Stonehenge, England
With the development of Carbon-14 dating techniques, the infusion-diffusion conception of British Neolithic history was abandoned and the megalithic monuments of Britain (and Europe) were shown to predate those of the eastern Mediterranean, Egyptian, Mycenean, and Greek cultures.
During the past few decades the orthodox archaeological opinion generally assumed their function to be concerned with the ritual activities and territorial markings of various Neolithic chiefdoms.
Interpretations of the stone rings made in previous centuries tended to reflect the cultural biases of their times and were sometimes wildly imaginative.

 Major Religions Ranked by Size
This list is based primarily on the degree of doctrinal/theological similarity among all the various sub-groups which belong to these classifications, and to a lesser extent based on diversity in practice, ritual and organization.
In many countries (Germany is a good example) there is also segment of the population which is counted as adherents of a religion, but which do not personally profess belief in that religion.
This is comparable to certain Catholic and Protestant nations in Europe where the majority of people have been Christianed or otherwise counted as a member of the state church, but where large proportions of the population are non-practicing.

 Forward to the Past - Capitalism in Post-Communist Europe
The core countries of Central Europe (the Czech Republic, Hungary and, to a lesser extent, Poland) experienced industrial capitalism in the inter-war period.
The present brobdignagian agricultural sectors in countries as diverse as Poland and Macedonia attest to this continuity of feudal practices.
But the countries comprising the vast expanses of the New Independent States, Russia and the Balkan had no real acquaintance with it.

 (I) Overview of State-Sponsored Terrorism
The United States is firmly committed to removing countries from the list once they have taken necessary steps to end their link to terrorism.
If the United States deems a country to "repeatedly provide support for acts of international terrorism," the US Government is required by law to add it to the list.
The designation of state sponsors of terrorism by the United States--and the imposition of sanctions--is a mechanism for isolating nations that use terrorism as a means of political expression.

 Nothing to Fear: Washington Should Embrace the European Union
Contrary to the Atlanticist evolution of Europe and revitalization of NATO that was a signal achievement of the late 1990s, resistance to U.S. leadership is now growing among democratic populations whose support Washington needs as much as it does that of their leaders.
In "Saving NATO From Europe," (November/December 2004), Jeffrey L. Cimbalo warns that a dagger is pointed at the heart of the Atlantic alliance, and the murder weapon is the European Union's draft constitution.
Ratification of that document, Cimbalo asserts, would have "profound and troubling implications for the transatlantic alliance and for future U.S. influence in Europe." Washington, he believes, should "end its uncritical support for European integration" and work with its friends in Europe to halt the EU process and save NATO from an untimely death.

 AEI - Short Publications
Europe considers nationalism the main cause of its troubled past: it bloodied the continent until the defeat of Nazism gave way--no doubt under the benign protection of the American umbrella--to a post-nationalist European Union where war is forever banned and peaceful trade and diplomacy have become the sole instruments of power relations in the world.
Muslim immigrants have no incentive to develop an allegiance to their home countries in Europe because Europe discourages that behavior and the general social tendency is to denigrate nationalism and patriotism as forms of reactionary and dangerous ideologies.
To command loyalty, Europe needs to be more than a geographical extension of territory that bestows rights to those who happen to inhabit it and castigates those holding onto allegiances considered both historically obsolete and socially pernicious, especially since those allegiances may hold the key to Europe’s successful integration of its growing immigrant communities.

 European Arrogance and Weakness Dictate Coalitions of the Willing
Europe, such as it presently exists, suits general American interests--its member states are capable of assisting the U.S. when their interests coincide with America's; yet it is too feeble to easily block America over fundamental issues of national security.
Countries in the EU, such as the UK and Ireland, would have to legally recalibrate their trading regimes with Brussels--something that, given the protectionist nature of the EU, they should do anyway.
A more united Europe was necessary to "build counterweights" to combat "the risk of hegemony." Any thought that classical balance-of-power thinking was no longer relevant in today's global environment ought to be put to rest by any vague scrutiny of the French government's rationale for a more coherent Europe.
