[Cover of The pro-European reader]

Dick Leonard, Mark Leonard (ed.)

January 2002

This definitive guide to the case for Europe brings together a unique collection of political, cultural and social arguments for closer European integration and full and whole-hearted British participation in the European Union. Contributions range from political and historical debate, to consideration of the impact of Europe on our everyday lives. Influential figures quoted include Winston Churchill speaking on a United States of Europe in 1946, Mikhail Gorbachev on 'The Common European Home', Anthony Giddens' discussion of 'A Third Way for the European Union', and Milan Kundera on 'Europe and the Novel'.

"Packed full of wisdom and vision. Here's a book full of cures for prejudice and phobia" Neil Kinnock
