Two British dons who for years have sought to analyze or shape British politics study the referendum on the EEC, the first such referendum in the history of Britain. They do so in a most readable fashion, focusing on the referendum as "a crucial turning point in Britain's relations with Europe, as an episode in the continuing processes of British political life, and as a constitutional innovation." A work of considerable importance.
