Description
The forefathers of European union, led by Jean Monnet, hoped to create a 'United States of Europe' with national sovereignties subordinated to a federal government. Few in Britain shared their dream. Yet Britain abandoned her aloof stand of 1950, and eventually joined the European Communities. Lord Beloff asks whether the key figures - Harold Macmillan, Edward Heath and Harold Wilson - knowingly deceived the electorate into thinking that entry could be combined with the country's independence of action and historic constitution, or whether they thought they could persuade continental statesmen from inside of the merits of a much looser structure.
