In the aftermath of Brexit, it is time to call time on the EU? Updated and revised

With Britain leaving the EU, now is the time for an obituary for the EU as an institution. In this short, rigorously argued book, updated after Brexit, John R. Gillingham tells the history of an idea that has soured and withered away.

He reveals the failures from its postwar origins to set out what the EU was; the role that Delors played in creating the neoliberal monster it is today, and the contemporary – crises; refugees, Brexit, the Euro – that the current institution fails to deal with.

Reviews

  • John Gillingham has established himself as one of those very rare commentators who can read European history in three dimensions

    Norman Stone, Oxford University
  • An excellent, up-to-date history of the EU which overturns many preconceived ideas and challenges the views of Eurofanatics and Eurosceptics alike.

    Alan Sked, London School of Economics
  • John Gillingham is the pre-eminent American historian of the European Union

    Charles S. Maier, Harvard University
