Mentalitätsgeschichte der Adria – Neugierde und Konflikt als Betriebsgeheimnis
If we are to rethink Europe, we first have to decide which Europe we want. The future does not simply happen by itself, without our involvement. It can only assume its shape as a result of our participation, our knowledge or lack of knowledge, our hopes and fears. The individual contributions are revised versions from two conferences that took place in Trieste. Three problem areas are discussed: The Laboratory Europe, European arts, stories, and languages as well as European living environment and space. An important role is thereby played by the dialectics of origin and future, as well as by the creativity resulting from contradictions and synergies.
The Austrian Publishers and Booksellers Association represents the interests of Austria´s book industry in economic and political matters. The most important project of the Association is the annual Vienna International Book Fair (BUCH WIEN), in which the Austrian Book Price is awarded.
