About the Author

David Gowland was Founder and Director of the School of Contemporary European Studies and Head of the History Department at the University of Dundee, UK. He is
the author of numerous successful books and articles including Longman's "The European Mosaic" series and Britain and European Integration since 1945 (Routledge).


"David Gowland presents a clear and very comprehensive account of Britain's troubled relationship with European integration from the post-war period through decades of EU membership to the complexities of Brexit."
Simon Bulmer, University of Sheffield, UK"This significantly-updated second edition of the book provides comprehensive coverage of Britain's involvement with the European integration process. Engagingly-written, containing a wealth of detail, it offers many insights into the role of Britain in Europe and the European issue in British politics. A valuable resource for teaching and studying at undergraduate level."
Ben Clements, University of Leicester, UK"Recent post-Brexit events make the second edition of Britain and the European Union an even more compelling and indispensable read than the first. It is an unrivalled source for comprehending Britain's past and present relationship with the European Union and anticipating its likely future."
Anthony M. Messina, Trinity College, USA
