The European Question and the National Interest - Jeremy Black

Posted by Michael Mosbacher

The European Question and the National Interest
by Jeremy Black
Pp. 149. Social Affairs Unit, 2006
Hardback, 16.99

The Social Affairs Unit is today publishing a new book by Jeremy Black, The European Question and the National Interest. This book by one of Britain's leading historians offers an alternative, historically grounded, Euro-sceptic account of Britain's relationship to European integration. Jeremy Black takes the story from the "deep history" of the historical background to Britain's relations with continental Europe to scenarios for Britain's future relations with the EU.

The European Question and the National Interest argues that supporters of the European "project" have offered a dubious reading of history to support their assertions about the supposed inevitability - the supposed inherent "destiny" - of further European integration.

The European Question and the National Interest further argues that those advocating closer European integration have failed to define - let alone advance - the national interest.

Jeremy Black is the author of over 60 books and is widely acknowledged to be one of the UK's leading academic historians. In 2000 he was awarded an MBE for services to stamp design.

The European Question and the National Interest can be ordered directly from the Social Affairs Unit, or from, or through any UK bookshop.
