Edmund Dell examines the Attlee government's rejection of the Schuman Plan for the establishment of a common market for coal and steel and reassesses Bevan's conduct as foreign secretary. The story is placed in the context of the "big questions" dominating British policy formation: security, the dollar shortage, the American attack on the sterling area, and pressure for European integration.

`It is a withering tale of a massive policy error, and Dell ... conducts a mordant inquisition which condemns without appeal the Labour government of the day.' Financial Times
`Dell's book is a meticulous account ... Not only is Dell a convinced, and consistent European; he is also a former Labour cabinet minister.' Times Higher Education Supplement
`Dell's book is a meticulous account, shot through with anger.' Times Higher Education Supplement
`Edmund Dell's wonderfully engrossing book will fuel the greater debate. His comprehensive analysis of Britain's rejection of the Schuman Plan in 1950 raises too many important issues for all to be discussed here ... Throughout he is scrupulously fair in his treatment of the convincing counter-arguments which he discusses at some length, thereby providing a valuable synthesis of debate.' The Political Quarterly
`Provocative and stimulating book ... This is a lively and well written book which provides the first detailed account of the Attlee government's attitudes to Europe.' The Economic Journal
`brilliant ... book.' New Statesman and Society, 20 June 1997
