Britain and European Unity, 1945-1992

By John W. Young
St. Martin's Press, 1993
217 pp. $39.95

The author, a young British political scientist, argues that membership in the EEC, even belated membership, marked a revolution for an island country that still has no great enthusiasm for Europe. A particular virtue of this short and informative book is its analysis of different interpretations of British policy, with some newly available sources used for the immediate postwar period.
