"It is the first substantial treatment of the political processes underpinning the EU referendum ... . this work succeeds in carrying through a coherent message that combines historical, analytical and theoretical perspectives. ... Its detailed and historically sensitive discussion of the referendum process will nevertheless remain an important document for those seeking to understand this momentous event, while its theoretical foray opens up comparative analyses with broader global phenomena driven by `Rousseau's revenge'."
