The prior hundred years of Europe are distilled within the reviews of the voters of Strasbourg. From the flip of the 20th century till 1945, Europe's ruling concept of nationalism rendered Strasbourg/Straßburg the prize in a tug-of-war among the 2 maximum continental powers, France and Germany. Then, within the rapid post-war interval, beliefs for eu cohesion organize a number of ecu associations, a few founded in Strasbourg, that have progressively created supranational Europe. on the finish of the Nineteen Fifties, a 3rd topic arises: the large-scale settling in Strasbourg and different such richer, western eu towns of people from poorer lands, often ex-colonial territories, whose visual appeal and cultural practices render them basically "different" to neighborhood eyes: expressions of racism thereby jostle with professions of multiculturalism. Now within the globalisation period, the difficulty of "immigration" has broadened but additional into transnationalism: the event of folks who're embedded in various demeanour in either Strasbourg and of their land of starting place. in line with in-depth, full of life interviews with eighty males and eighty girls starting from a hundred and one to twenty years, and from around the globe (France, Germany, Alsace-Lorraine, Portugal, Italy, ex-Yugoslavia, Albania, Algeria, Morocco, Turkey, Cameroon, and Afghanistan among different countries), the writer attracts out of those compelling stories all types of compelling insights into problems with identification, race, nationality, tradition, politics, historical past and illustration, giving a special and invaluable view of what it capability (and has intended over the last century) to be a European.
