As Britain prepares to go to the polls to settle its European future, this powerful and accessible book makes an unequivocal case for Britain remaining in the European Union.

It argues that in spite of the EU's undoubted problems, Europe is a more prosperous, peaceful and secure place as a result of political and economic integration. Not only does the book set out the countless way so in which membership of the EU has improved British lives, but it also takes on the arguments of critics and sceptics. It shows these are too often based on myths and misunderstandings, and shows how a more accurate picture of the EU can enable us to appreciate its achievements and address its challenges.

This is a book that turns the volume down on euroscepticsm, and that will make essential reading for all those who want to understand better what is at stake as Britain prepares to vote on whether to remain in or leave the EU.
