The introduction outlines the case for and structure of the examination of spaces in Paris in which ideas about Europe were formulated, articulated, exchanged, circulated, and contested during this post-war period, roughly between the escalation of the Cold War and the end of the Algerian war of decolonisation. It explains that the concept of space is broadly conceived here to encompass academic scholarship, political movements, cultural groups, journals, literature, manifestos, photographs, images, and physical urban space. Included are not only explicit interventions about the continent, but also discourse that implicitly called into question the terms of thinking about the meaning of Europe and of Europeanness. The meaning of Europeanising spaces is also discussed.
