About the Author

Edmund Dell was Lecturer in Modern History at the Queen's College from 1945 to 1947, until going into politics. He was Paymaster General from 1974 to 1976 and Secretary of State for Industry from 1976 to 1978.


`Dell is writing a tract for our times, full of lessons for those who miss history's tricky rendezvous...All should read Dell's book.'
New Statesman & Society, 13/07/1995
`It is a withering tale of a massive policy error, and Dell ... conducts a mordant inquisition which condemns without appeal the Labour government of the day.'
Financial Times
`Dell's book is a meticulous account ... Not only is Dell a convinced, and consistent European; he is also a former Labour cabinet minister.'
Times Higher Education Supplement
`Dell's book is a meticulous account, shot through with anger.'
Times Higher Education Supplement
`Edmund Dell's wonderfully engrossing book will fuel the greater debate. His comprehensive analysis of Britain's rejection of the Schuman Plan in 1950 raises too many important issues for all to be discussed here ... Throughout he is scrupulously fair in his treatment of the convincing counter-arguments which he discusses at some length, thereby providing a valuable synthesis of debate.'
The Political Quarterly
`Provocative and stimulating book ... This is a lively and well written book which provides the first detailed account of the Attlee government's attitudes to Europe.'
The Economic Journal
`brilliant ... book.'
New Statesman & Society, 20 June 1997
