British politics have been crucially shaped by England's role as pioneer of capitalism, by the experience of Empire, and by the particular form of its union with Scotland, Ireland and Wales. With the decline of Empire the attempt to bridge Europe and Amer

'Like a soaring distress flare, Andrew Gamble's new book throws sudden and merciless light on the shipwreck of British policies. The English imperial state, drifting rudderless since the humiliations of the Iraq crisis, is about to hit the reef which it has tried to avoid for so long: the choice between European identity and the American special relationship. Gamble reveals what may happen to the passengers - and what illusions and misreadings of the chart over so many years deceived the crew.' - Neal Ascheson'Scholarly, readable, well-reasoned and full of insights, Between Europe and America captures the defining question about British politics in theearly 21st century. Building on his earlier writings about the British state, Andrew Gamble is superbly equipped to probe both the domestic and the geo-political implications of the choice that has to be made.' - Hugo Young[A] brilliant analysis of the long historical roots of Britain's ambiguous attitude to the EU.' - John Rentoul, The Independent'[A] readable and critical synthesis linking together not only domestic and international developments but also past and present as afoundation for articulating future possibilities....a recommended read for staff and students seeking a broad view of contemporary British politics and history.' - Peter J. Beck, Political Studies Review

Review Text

  • By Tracy Haigh on 27 February 2011

    Gamble is a particularly good author in that he is extremely readable. Complicated theories are carefuly unpacked and easily understood. He has a distinct slant on Britains relationship with America, and how this permeates domestic and foreign policy outcomes. I used this book for inspiration on the assessment of Britains reluctance to join the EU. His flair in writing teases out alternative ways of thinking, an absolute must for a higher academic student.
