Summary This provocative book looks ahead to the coming conflicts between the US and the emerging United States of Europe. Should Britain become the 15th state of Euroland or the 51st state of America? John Redwood sets out four possible futures for Britain, concluding that joining the European political project would be bad for the UK and for the cause of free trade and democracy around the world. He explains why the US needs a special relationship with Britain and how the English-speaking world offers the best approach to peace and prosperity in a world.
