9780199284559: A Stranger in Europe: Britain and the EU from Thatcher to Blair

For over twenty years, at the heart of Whitehall, Sir Stephen Wall worked for British leaders as they shaped Britain's European policy: Margaret Thatcher fighting to get 'her money back'; John Major at Maastricht where the single European currency was born; Tony Blair negotiating the Amsterdam, Nice and Constitutional Treaties. Stephen Wall draws on his experience to trace a journey from 1982 to the present as successive British governments have wrestled with their relationship with their EU partners.

A Stranger in Europe goes behind the scenes to tell the story of how Margaret Thatcher and her successors sought to reconcile Britain's national and European interests. Drawing on the documents of the period it gives a unique insight into how Britain's leaders weighed the British national interest and the interests and personalities of their European counterparts. This is the story of Prime Ministers and Foreign Secretaries in intimate discussion with other EU leaders, of how politicians instruct and motivate their top officials to implement their political will and how those officials seek to turn political instruction into negotiating success.

Stephen Wall analyses British success, and failure. He shows how, despite differences of declared aim and of personality, Britain's leaders have in practice followed very similar paths. Britain has been an awkward partner, often at odds with her fellow Europeans: a stranger in Europe. But with dogged determination and seriousness of purpose Britain's leaders have done much to shape and reform the modern Europe in which we live today.

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. Hardcover. 240 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.1in. x 0.9in.For over twenty years Sir Stephen Wall was at the heart of Whitehall, working for a succession of British leaders as they shaped Britains policy towards the European Union. He was there behind the scenes when Margaret Thatcher took on the rest of Europe to get her money back. He was with John Major at Maastricht where the single European currency was born. He was with Tony Blair as a negotiator of the EUs Amsterdam, Nice and Constitutional Treaties. As a senior official in London, as Britains ambassador to the European Union and as Tony Blairs senior official adviser on Europe he saw Prime Ministers and Foreign Secretaries define, defend and promote Britains interests in Europe. Drawing on that experience, Stephen Wall traces a British journey from 1982 to the present as successive British governments have wrestled with their relationship with their fellow EU partners, with the European Commission and the European Parliament. A Stranger in Europe goes behind the scenes as Margaret Thatcher and her successors have sought to reconcile Britains national and European interests. Drawing on the official documents of the period, he gives a unique insight into how Britains leaders have balanced objective assessment of Britains wishes; political, press and public pressures; their own political instincts and the aims, interests and personalities of their fellow European leaders. We see Britains Prime Ministers in intimate discussion with other EU leaders. We experience how Britains top politicians motivated the best civil servants of their day and how those civil servants, in turn, sought to turn political instructions into negotiating successes. Above all, we see people at the top of their game trying to promote the British national interest and be good Europeans at the same time. Stephen Wall analyses both Britains successes and our failures and shows how, despite the differences of declared aim, and huge differences of personality, Britains political leaders have in practice followed very similar paths. He concludes that Britain has been an awkward partner, often at odds with her partners: a stranger in Europe. But with dogged determination and seriousness of purpose Britains leaders have nonetheless done much to shape and reform the modern Europe in which we live today.
