Summary
  • "Harold Wilson's apparent volte-face on European Community membership in the autumn of 1966 has long puzzled commentators and Wilson's colleagues alike. Based on interviews, private papers and recently released evidence from the National Archives, this book provides a fresh interpretation of Wilson's policy towards the European Community."
  • "Britain's policy is analysed between 1964 when Harold Wilson took office, and 1967 when the French President General de Gaulle vetoed Britain's membership application for a second time. Britain's Policy Towards the European Community examines the rationale behind Britain's approach, explaining why Wilson launched an initiative for membership when the French seemed certain to obstruct. Helen Parr considers Wilson's handling of the Cabinet, and elucidates Britain's diplomacy towards the Six, placing British policy towards Europe within the context of Britain's foreign policy transition from a global to a regional role
  • This book will prove to be essential reading for students of postwar British history and those interested in Britain's historical relationship with Europe."--Jacket
