Summary

One of the most crucial aspects of Britain's recent history is the nation's ambivalent relationship to the rest of Europe and the process of European Integration. Britain has been divided from Europe by centuries of Religious conflict. This book reveals an important aspect of this area of political culture and its influence on foreign policy. It examines the centrality of religious identities to the ambivalent attitudes of Britons toward their nation's place between continental Europe and the American superpower.
