|About the Book|
It is no accident that new regimes rewrite their history books. This collection by academics across Europe explores the relationship between models of history teaching, how they influence the building of collective and individual identities and civic education and, in particular, the impact on conflict resolution and intercultural education. The theoretical focus is on historical consciousness- the geographic focus is on Europe and its Mediterranean neighbors.This is volume seven in the acclaimed series European Issues in Children s Identity and Citizenship, published with the European Union Thematic Network Programme, Childrens Identity and Citizenship. Timely and valuable for sociologists and educators, it examines the development and change in young people s socialization in Europe as they come to understand their societies and those of their neighbors.
