It considers the whole case, presenting a unique synthesis of political, cultural and social ideas. It includes the historic political arguments of the debate from a range of illustrious figures including Winston Churchill, Jean Monnet, Roy Jenkins, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Tony Blair. However, The Reader powerfully moves beyond politics with writers such as Milan Kundera and David Puttnam discussing the impact of Europe on our everyday lives: from our cities and identities to football and film.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Intended to promote the pro-European cause in Britain, this volume presents some of the most elegant and persuasive arguments available on the subject, written by those most involved in the processes, including Winston Churchill, George Orwell, Jacques Delors, Vaclav Havel, Milan Kundera, Neil Kinnock, and others. Contributions map out the future shape of Europe and examine the positive and powerful impact of Europe on people's daily lives. Contributions include reprinted extracts from speeches, essays primarily written for this volume, and contributions by a series of distinguished writers highlighting cultural and sociological rather than political and economic factors.
