European integration has long been a controversial issue in British politics. Whether we should have the Euro and a European Constitution have caused even deeper divides to emerge. This timely and comprehensive book looks at the European policies of the British Left since the end of World War II and provides a clear illustration of the range of debates that have taken place. It also includes interviews with the key players including Tony Benn and Neil Kinnock.

Editorial Reviews

"Andrew Mullen's book is an impressively researched and controversial addition to literature on British politics and European integration ... [the] book is one with which scholars should engage, both as an extremely useful reference to the policies of the Left, and a sustained attempt to place them within a wider international structure." - Contemporary British History
