Brexit, No Exit : Why in the End Britain Won't Leave Europe (Paperback) (Denis MacShane)
about this item
The UK’s Brexit vote on June 23, 2016 provided the most dramatic proof that the era of political and economic globalization has ended. Populism, nationalism, and xenophobia surging across Europe and Brexit adds to the problems facing the established political order. As a former MP and Europe minister under Tony Blair, and latterly as a commentator and writer on European issues, Denis MacShane has a unique insider perspective on the events that led to Brexit and the behind-the-scenes discussions that followed. He argues that Brexit will not mean full rupture with Europe and that British capitalism will overcome the ultra-right-wing forces of the Conservative back-bench and UKIP. Although the path to Article 50 and beyond will be fraught and tensely-negotiated, Britain cannot and will not divorce itself from the continent of Europe and the European question will continue to be a defining feature of politics into the future.
