Debating Europe

By Norman Davies

Andrew Moravcsik’s review of David Marquand’s book The End of the West (“Recent Books on International Relations,” September/October 2011) characterized Marquand as both a political turncoat and a weak-kneed, inconsistent thinker who has reversed his position on European integration. These are damaging accusations, and both are manifestly untrue. Marquand has always been a pillar of the United Kingdom’s democratic left; he stuck with the Social Democratic Party from start to finish, and he has never wavered in his advocacy of European integration.
