Summary

Richard Griffiths invites the listener to look closer at the history and the underlying reasons behind the main developments of European integration. He passionately presents a history that is richer and intellectually more satisfying than much of the elegiac literature on the European union that passes for history. A solid and humorous account on the making of the union.

  • Chapter 1: The First Supranational Community: The European Coal and Steel Community,
  • Chapter 2: A Missed Chance: The European Defence Community,
  • Chapter 3: The Creation of the European Economic Community: The Rome Treaties,
  • Chapter 4: Reactive Nationalism? De Gaulle and Europe,
  • Chapter 5: Reactive Nationalism? The British Membership Problem,
  • Chapter 6: 1992. The Completion of the Internal Market,
  • Chapter 7: The European union. Economic and Monetary union,
  • Chapter 8: A Family of Twenty-five. EU Enlargement.

No great insights

Nothing much I didn’t know about the history of the EU before listening to this audiobook.Also,it’s a bit outdated.No mention at all of the referendum in 2016 regarding UK membership of the EU.Overall,I’m a bit disappointed.
