The Birth of Identities

WAS £9.99 £4.99

Product description

" In North America and in Europe the changes and openings of recent decades are threatened by a new emphasis on the places of hierarchy and a fear of the loss of traditional identities. The influx of people from other countries who look for better lives in Europe and North America might seem to undermine the very civilization whose elite once took it for granted that the world lay at its feet. The rest of the world has taken us Europeans and Americans at our word and asks to come to us to share in the human liberties and possibilities which we consider our birthright.

In this new world, Europeans and American have every reason to reason to look back to their medieval origins for meaning, for warnings, and for identities. Thus the questions addressed in this book are by no means "merely academic". they are the stuff of our lives and the lives of our children and grandchildren. I believe we have something to offer them ".

Book in fair condition with much wear to edges of the covers.inside pages are clean and clean and securely bound. Printed in 1996, first edition.
