It ended in failure with French President Charles de Gaulles veto in November 1967. Harold Wilson and Europe traces the development of Britains policy towards the EC from the veto to the end of Wilsons government in June 1970. Based on detailed archival research, Melissa Pine traces Wilsons efforts to forge stronger bonds with EC states while managing both a cabinet divided on the issue, and a complex broader foreign policy. This fascinating insight into the Wilson government reveals Wilsons early diplomacy was vital for the Conservatives successful negotiation of British entry into the EC by 1973.

Pine concludes that Wilson was personally committed to securing membership, and that he and key members of his government played a crucial role in securing the UKs eventual membership of the EC.
