Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The UK Permanent Representatives have managed the nuances and neuroses of Britain’s membership of the European Union for 30 years. Their reflections are – naturally – not kick and tell. But they are a unique and illuminating record of how effective engagement has been sustained despite headlines, handbags, empty chairs and other dramas." Neil Kinnock, Vice President, European Commission

"This book contains invaluable insights into Britain's existential struggle to come to terms with its membership of the European Union. What better witnesses could we have than those who have played a role somewhere between diplomacy and psychotherapy as Britain's Ambassadors to the European Union?" Chris Patten, European Commissioner

"Quite interesting and illuminating...the introduction and conclusion by Anand Menon tie in the themes of the contributors well and the editor has done well to bring these people together." Australian Journal of Political Science
