The problem of who, or what, are ‘Europeans’ is at the centre of many of the most acute political and social issues confronting contemporary Europe.

Here's a link to the original: http://bit.ly/pj9pje Wilfred Owen was particularly proud of this poem, he showed it to Robert Graves who encouraged him to publish.

These include nation-regions like Scotland and Wales, larger entities like the German Länder, and smaller more recently created regions with less existing cultural unity. Despite the very large differences between them, for our purposes all these political entities are called ‘regions’. The un
