Summary/Abstract: The objective of our research is to point out some aspects on the context and the maincauses that led to the reconfiguration of Europe after the fall of communism on this continent. Today,Europe as a whole coincides approximately with the geographical Europe. There never was oneEurope: since old times, there has been more than one Europe, between them the divider lines havevaried widely. Our intention is to present some approaches from some well-known historians,marking the context of historical evolution of a European space which included major players in theconflict generated by the Cold War. The results of our research are focused on the last part of thepaper. These findings highlight the Soviets being more skillful, and they have won in some places,often in situations of incredible inferiority compared to the free world, which did not know or did notwant to exploit the advantages. Finally we conclude that the history of this continent, although thesmallest of them all, interested the history in its universal resorts, as it had an impact truly decisive onother continents, either by implantation which gave rise to the new ―Europe‖ either require to othernations through the exercised domination, its structures and ways of thinking and its economic policyorganization.
