“Europa, vocación y destino de España” collects a series of writings that Marcelino Oreja has been generating throughout his long political life on the idea of Europe and its evolution, from the Transición to the present day.
In the words of Charles Powell: “The reading of these texts - articles, speeches, opinions and recollections - has the enormous interest of offering the reader an engaged (but never self-indulgent) vision of the evolution of Europe throughout a fascinating epoch of our most recent history. The conclusion that the reader of these pages may reach is that, ultimately, that 'dream Europe' is also still a Europe worth fighting for ”.
The book has been edited within the collection Raíces de Europa, published in collaboration with the Royal Institute for European Studies of the CEU San Pablo University.
