In this panel debate on the much-acclaimed book series Making Europe, key questions will be “Who, indeed, built Europe? Entrepreneurs and engineers? Politicians and scientists? Consumers and activists?”. “Making Europe” tells the story in 6 richly illustrated volumes. This series charts the people and ideas, the goods and technologies that spread between countries— and between continents. “Making Europe” reveals the history of: day-to-day practices, from drinking milk to commanding wind power; powerful infrastructures, from the railroads to the Internet; knowledge networks, from CERN to the European Space Agency.
