The British Left’s ’Great Debate’ on Europe
Mullen (politics, Northumbria U., UK) traces the debates within the British left (consisting of the Labour Party, the trade unions, the Cooperative Party, the Independent Labour Party, the Social Democratic Party, and others) over the European integration project from 1945 to 2005. He offers detailed accounts of the shifting positions of the various parties influential in government and on the debate-shaping influence played by smaller groups including anarchist organizations, green and socialist parties, and pressure groups and think tanks. After the chronological narrative, he identifies the economic and political factors that precipitated tectonic policy shifts over the course of half a century, arguing that they resulted from transformations in the balance of power between anti- and pro-EU forces, themselves linked to competing social forces at the global, European, national, and institutional levels.
