As David Owen notes in The UK's In-Out Referendum, the European Union's attempts at conflict resolution have left much to be desired. In the Ukraine, Baltic States, Turkey, and much of the Middle East, a lack of coherent policy has dominated. This book argues that the negotiations around the United Kingdom's referendum vote represent an opportunity to enact wide-scale reform, not least to ensure that the nations of an increasingly politically integrated Eurozone do not come to dominate the foreign and security policy of the European Union in the years to come. To allow them to do so, Owen argues, would almost certainly see the policy of "common defense" advance at the expense of alasting US commitment to NATO. Ultimately, Owen contends, Britain's continued membership of a largely unreformed European Union would have serious implications for the United Kingdom's security, and that foreign policy and security belong at the heart of the reforms the European Union so desperately needs.

Here's what you say about us...

Lord David Owen was Foreign Secretary from 1977 to 1979. He was one of the founders of the Social Democratic Party and has held a number of senior international appointments. His many books include In Sickness and in Power and The Hubris Syndrome: Bush, Blair and the Intoxication of Power.

"Rather like the UK, Lord Owen's pocket-sized book punches above its weight. . . . Owen does more in 55 pages than acres of newsprint and hours of TV debates."
