This timely contribution pulls no punches and views the UK as institutionally Eurosceptic across politics and society, from the press to defence. It represents a rich and original contribution to the emerging field of Eurosceptic studies, and a key contribution to this important issue.

Reviews

“The book titled ‘The UK Challenge to Europeanization: The Persistence of British Euroscepticism’ deals with the unrest of the UK about her EU membership. … It is a very valuable source of information especially for those who want to have a detailed knowledge about the Euroscepticism in the UK.” (Seven Erdogan, Journal of Global Analysis, Vol. 6 (2), 2016)



'This collection on Euroscepticism brings together a wide range of contributors to provide a broad-based understanding of Euroscepticism in the most Eurosceptic of EU member states. Like the phenomenon of Euroscepticism itself, the book covers a wide range and comes from a diverse set of sources. The books is a welcome addition to the research on Euroscepticism in both the UK and in the Europe more generally.' Paul Taggart, Professor of Politics, University of Sussex, UK

'Euroscepticism has become one of the most important forces in British politics. This volume brings together a diverse group of political scientists, from the UK and beyond, who offer stimulating and challenging analyses of the institutional, cultural, political and nationalist dynamics at its heart. As the question of the UK's membership of the EU moves to the centre of the political stage, the multi-angled, critical reflections set out in this collection will be an invaluable source.' Michael Kenny, Professor of Politics, Queen Mary University of London, UK
