The European Community in the World

By Richard Bailey Copyright 1978

    First published in 1973 The European Community in the World shows what ‘outward looking’ can mean in terms of British participation in the Community and of the Community’s policies and actions as a world power. Richard Bailey says that the time for argument for or against British membership of the Common market has gone. The enlargement of the Community is a fact: how, then, can Britain best adjust to the new situation? The extension of the European Community is significant for all the world and will increase its power among the institutions that govern the world, affecting the politics of many countries from Sweden to Swaziland.

    In post Brexit world, this book is a must read for students and scholars of European politics, European history, British history, and British politics.
