A Europe of Diversity

I confess to a reluctance to talk of Europe Today. It springs from the fact that the great events in the world seem to be happening elsewhere. We think of the Soviet Empire, which seems at last to be breaking up; we think of nations and peoples which we had quite forgotten existed, or of which perhaps we have never even heard, now making their way through the headlines of our Western papers into history.
