This collection explores British attitudes to Continental Europe that explain the Brexit decision. Addressing British-European entanglements and the impact of British Euroscepticism, the book argues that Britain is in denial about the strength of its ties to Europe. The volume brings together literary and cultural studies, history, and political science in an integrated analysis of views and practices that shape cultural memory. Part one traces the historical and political relationship between Britain and Europe, whilst Part two is devoted to exemplary case studies of films as well as popular Eurosceptic and historical fiction. Part three engages with border mindedness and Britain’s island story. The book is addressed both to specialists in cultural studies, and a wider audience interested in Brexit.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The collection impresses by its interdisciplinary range. In this sense, it is an ideal specimen of Cultural-Studies scholarship, no matter whether all contributors would readily identify with this label or not. Academics from various disciplines – historians, political scientists, literary studies scholars, etc. – have come together and produced insightful and very readable essays on this eminently important issue which complement each other perfectly. This is essential reading for everyone interested in how the United Kingdom has ‘located’ itself in and/or vis-à-vis (continental) Europe.'Gerold Sedlmayer, Anglia – Journal of English Philology - .
