Britain and European Unity, 1945-1999 Paperback / softback
Part of the British History in Perspective series
This book provides a lucid and comprehensive survey of British policy towards European integration from 1929, when a French foreign minister first suggested a European Federation, to 1999, when the single currency, the Euro, was launched. Fully revised and updated, this second edition explains why Britain did not become a founder member of the European Community in the 1950s, what motivated the French to prevent Britain from joining in the 1960s and why, since 1973, most British governments have found it hard to commit to a European future.
