The EU referendum is fast approaching, and the British public (that’s you) will have the opportunity to decide the future of this country. The question may be simple (should the UK stay in the European Union or leave it), but answering it is anything but. When you cast your votes, do not do so lightly. Make sure you are familiar with the arguments on both sides, and above all make sure you know the facts. We thought it would be a good idea to create a public display with some books on the subject, so you can have a chance to self-educate about the EU before the big day. And if you’re someone who hasn’t taken notice of the debate so far or perhaps doesn’t know much about the EU and what Britain’s membership means, why not take a look. The stakes are too high for you not to pay attention…
This book offers a pragmatic and matter of fact take on the problems facing Europe today and proposed solutions thereof.
An essential port of call for anyone who wants to become more familiar with how the EU works and what it does, as well its history and ideals.
As the title suggests, this book provides a balanced guide to both sides of the EU debate, examining whether the UK is better off in or out, and what the costs and benefits of both options would be.
A collection of essays from figures on both sides of the debate (Caroline Lucas, John Redwood, Chris Bryant, Chris Huhne, Daniel Hannan, to name but a few).
