Britain on the Edge of Europe describes Britains post-war involvement with the continent amd assesses the countrys chances of enjoying the benefits of the projected European boom. Analysing the economic and political effects of Britains edge-location, the author challenges orthodox notions of distance, cost and competitiveness and assumptions about the likely regional impact on Britain. At a time when British expectations of Europe are very much in the balance, Britain on the Edge of Europe puts the countrys trade position into perspective.
