Summary
"Rejection of European Community membership in 1955 was a vital development in Britain's postwar history. James Ellison's Threatening Europe reassesses this decision and is the first book to deal with the British attempt to place the European Economic Community (EEC) within a larger organisation, the European Free Trade Area (FTA). It challenges traditional views which imply that the FTA was purely an attempt to sabotage the EEC at birth and argues that British policy was more sophisticated and British attitudes more diverse than has previously been suggested. This includes analysis of Foreign Office proposals for political cooperation in Europe based on recently released materials from the archives. Threatening Europe covers the negotiations between Britain, the EEC powers and other European countries and concludes with de Gaulle's veto of Britain's FTA in 1958. It sets these events within the context of Anglo-European diplomacy, wider international relations and the Cold War."--Jacket
