Summary
"At critical moments, Britain has played a crucial part in the political evolution of modern Europe, yet its stance has often been ambivalent: sometimes glad to be part of 'European civilization' but at other times rejoicing in the blessings of insularity. This book breaks new ground in tracing the evolving and contested understandings both of Britain and of Europe on the part of the politicians, diplomats, historians and travellers in the centuries since the French Revolution. The debate over Britain and Europe has long lacked depth. This book supplies it."--BOOK JACKET
