The Pro-European Reader
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This text is a guide to the case for Europe. It marshals the most persuasive arguments in favour of closer European integration and a full and whole-hearted British participation in the European Union. It considers the whole case, presenting a synthesis of political, cultural and social ideas. It includes the historic political arguments of the debate from a range of illustrious figures including Winston Churchill, Jean Monnet, Roy Jenkins, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Tony Blair. However, the book moves beyond politics, with writers such as Milan Kundera and David Puttnam discussing the impact of Europe on our everyday lives: from our cities and identities to football and film.
