    This lecture is an overview of the change that has been taking place in Europe since 1945. The lecture points out the main direction of the change {stability, prosperity and democracy} and briefly explains its impact on the Old Continent. Because the change is thorough and sweeping, Europe becomes a new continent. Hence the title of the lecture: the Old-New Continent.
