Britain and Europe: The Untold History takes a radical new look at Britain's relationship with her continental neighbours. Starting with King John and finishing with David Cameron, this book tells the story of a fragile sovereignty that has been lost, regained and bargained much more frequently than is generally realised. It also explains how, far from adopting a policy of splendid isolation, Britain has often played a positive and determinative role in European statecraft. These stories involve some of the most pivotal moments in British history (such as Magna Carta and the Glorious Revolution) and include some of its richest characters (such as Bloody Mary and Charles II). They are therefore worth telling in their own right. They are particularly interesting, however, in light of the debate about Britain's role in the European Union. Britain and Europe: The Untold History explains how lessons from history can help us chart a course for the future. This book was written in association with Tomorrow's Britain (www.tomorrowsbritain.org.uk).
