Editorial Reviews

Political Studies Review - Alasdair Blair

"It is reassuring to find that the debate over Britain's membership of the European Union is alive and well."

Eurofacts - John Mills

"This book is a mine of facts and data which are likely to be used by everyone writing or speaking about the EU for a long time to come."

The European Journal - Matthew Attwood

"Alarming Drum is the product of intensive research and as such is a valuable resource for anyone who needs easy access to the facts... Recent events would justify a chapter entitled 'Told You So' in any future edition."

This England

"An authoritative history and critique... characterised by a refreshing lack of hysteria."

England's Standard - David Ashton

"An extensive, refreshingly independent critique of the EU's accumulating economic, legal and political disadvantages."

Salisbury Review - Lee Rotherham

"The taramasalata of EU studies: key seasoning for a feast."

Peter Jay

"Peter Morgan shines a laser beam into the Euro-fog through which those who would betray Britain into the hands of a continental power seek to shroud their purposes."

Professor Patrick Minford, Cardiff Business School - Professor Patrick Minford

"Peter Morgan has done a thorough and masterly job of analysing Britain's relationship with the EU — political, legal and economic. His book is also a timely brief for the British people on the draft EU Constitution. It should be widely read."

Lord David Howell

"For those who want to see through and beyond the present blur of arguments and assertions about Britain's role in Europe, and about shared European foreign policy, 'Alarming Drum' is the book to read. It shatters the myth that Britain is faced with a 'take it or leave it’ choice in European affairs and shows with piercing accuracy where Britain’s best interests in the coming global order really lie."

Professor Tim Congdon, Lombard Street Research - Professor Tim Congdon

"Peter Morgan has written a challenging and important analysis of the most fundamental issue in British politics today."

Rt. Hon. David Heathcoat-Amory MP

"This is an important book for all those who want to know how the European Union went wrong, how it fails to meet the challenges of the modern world, and what Britain can do about it."

Ruth Lea, Director, Centre for Policy Studies - Ruth Lea

"The debate on Britain's membership of and relationship with the other member states of the EU is surely one that can only intensify. The more informed argument made available to support this all-important debate the better and I welcome 'Alarming Drum' as a very useful, timely and constructive contribution."

Professor Jeremy Black, University of Exeter - Professor Jeremy Black

"A timely and thoughtful work that helpfully clarifies the failure of the government to grasp adequately the practice of national interest."
