An Awkward Partner: Britain in the European Community
The first book-length survey of British policy toward the European community from its membership to 1989, this volume studies the policies that earned Britain a reputation for being at odds with major Community initiatives and for taking an independent point of view. With the approach of the single European market in 1992, this study offers a valuable account of an area of policy likely to come under increasing scrutiny.
