MEDIA REVIEWS

"David Gowland has long been one of the most considered authors on the UK-EU relationship and this work offers the first real analyses of how the 2016 referendum fits into the bigger picture of that history. The book is very readable and engaging, for scholars, students and a wider audience. At a time when the UK's European relationship is more in flux than ever before, this book provides some much-needed insight." - Simon Usherwood, University of Surrey, UK

"Britain and the European Union is clearly written, well informed, and accessible. It is a timely contribution for scholars and students alike." - Gary Marks, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, USA.

"David Gowland's account offers a very clear and comprehensive examination of the troubled historical relationship between Britain and European integration that culminated in the June 2016 Brexit vote." - Simon Bulmer, University of Sheffield, UK.

"Britain and the European Union illuminates the riveting history of Britain's accession to the then European Economic Community in 1973 up through its electorate's recent decision to abnegate the country's European Union membership. Uniquely comprehensive in its coverage of this important and still evolving story, the book will not fail to educate both the neophyte and expert student of contemporary British and European political history." - Anthony M. Messina, Trinity College, USA
