However the vote did send a message to Europe that Britain was not % committed to the EEC.   On 23 June , Britain voted to leave the European Union.

The rejection of the FTA by the Six marked a first, and important, reversal for the British and their attempts to achieve the ‘right sort of Europe’. The book’s main accomplishment is that it provides the first detailed analysis of British policy towards the European Community for the entire period from to It is based on painstaking research in primary sources, which Wall utilizes and interprets with extraordinary skill and authority.
