This is a chapter in my edited volume, The New Europe, Oxford, Blackwells, 1993, now out of print. I trace the position of Europe in the cold war, mainly from the 1940s onwards. The theme is that intra-European affairs cannot be understood in isolation from world affairs, as Stanley Hoffman pointed out many years ago in his book, Decline or Renewal: France since the 1930s, Viking Press, 1974.
