THE POLITICAL CONCEPT OF MITTELEUROPE BETWEEN REALITY AND MYTH

  • Andi Mihail BĂNCILĂ Academia Tehnica Militara

Abstract

The desintegration of the socialist states offered political leaders the chance to redefine the identity of their own nations. Even if the European Union, a creation of the occidental cultural space, represented the first option, a part of the leaders of central European states took very seriously the idea of rebuilding the economic and cultural space of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire. Even after the disintegration of this political and economic system, the central European world continued to refer to the rules that defined it. Despite the attempts of the communist regime to rewrite the history of these nations, Mitteleurope remained a mark for the people of these lands and even became a viable option in a society that rediscovered their multicultural past.
