This engaging and concise text offers the student and the general reader a compact, readable treatment of British membership of the European Union from 1973 to the present day. It provides a highly distilled and accessible analysis and overview of some of the parameters and recurring features of Britain's membership of the European Union, touching on all of the major facets of membership.

Key features:

  • examines the constant and changing character of British membership of the European Union (EU)
  • discusses the problematical and often paradoxical features of membership
  • familiarizes the reader with both academic and public debates about the subject
  • offers thematic treatment of all aspects of policy and attitudes towards the EU
  • provides an overview of the main landmarks in the history of the EU since 1973
  • presents the most comprehensive and up-to-date text on the course and result of the EU referendum campaign.

This book will be of key interest to scholars, students and the generally interested reader in the areas of European Studies, British Politics, EU Studies, Area Studies and International Relations.


David Gowland was Director of the School of Contemporary European Studies and also Head of the History Department at the University of Dundee.
