Population and Territory
There have been so many boundary changes over the nearly one hundred years dealt with in this volume that only the main shifts in boundaries in Western and Central Europe will be highlighted here. Different types of boundary changes must be distinguished: first, changes in what has been defined as Europe; and second, changing boundaries of the individual European nation-states. A third and fourth dimension could be added: the formation of nation-states through processes of unification, and boundary changes through the breakup of large empires.
