Britain, The Commonwealth and Europe: The Commonwealth and Britain's Applications to Join the European Communities
Springer, Apr 30, 2001 - History - 188 pages
Britain's loss of its empire and its 'turn' to Europe are the two most striking features of its foreign policy in the thirty years after 1945. The contributors to this book examine the connection between the two processes. Utilizing a range of sources, the authors challenge conventional interpretations of the connection, and in doing so raise important questions about the nature, motivation, and effects of British policy.
