The Schuman plan and the British abdication of leadership in Europe by Edmund Dell( Book )

This book provides the first detailed examination of the Attlee government's rejection of British participation in the Schuman Plan in 1950, and hence of a leading role in fashioning European political and economic integration. Many received myths are contested: the Schuman Plan was not a bolt from the blue; domestic political circumstances did not make it impossible for Britain to join; participation would not have been incompatible with Britain's global and Commonwealth roles. Edmund Dell assesses Ernest Bevin's conduct as Foreign Secretary during this last year of his life: in declining health but still believing himself indispensable, he was arrogantly mistaken about the Schuman Plan and lacked colleagues of comparable stature able to tell him he was wrong. The only hope was Stafford Cripps, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, but he was on the point of resignation due to ill-health and lacked the energy to press his doubts. Ministerial inadequacy was compounded by the Foreign Office, the leading officials in which were no less arrogant and quite as blind to the implications of the proposal. The consequence was a major policy failure which has influenced Britain's relations with its European partners right up to the present. Edmund Dell works with archival evidence, and the memoirs of participants, to place these events in the context of the 'big questions' dominating British policy formation: security, the dollar shortage, and the difficult relationship with an American administration intent both on attacking the sterling area and pressing for European federation

A strange eventful history : democratic socialism in Britain by Edmund Dell( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edmund Dell reviews the century and chronicles Labour's reluctant transition from socialism, advocated as a new form of society, to its acceptance of the market economy. He traces the fortunes of both the people and the politics." "The cast of characters includes not only leading figures in the Labour party, from Ramsay MacDonald to Tony Blair, but also others such as Harold Macmillan and Mrs. Thatcher who in their different ways contributed to the post-war consensus, but then felt betrayed by it. Tracing the transition from the visions of the Clause Four socialists to the conception of a modernised social democracy in the Third Way, Dell elucidates successive attempts to adapt both socialist theory and practice. He concludes that each attempt has only created a further set of unresolvable problems and that, in the end, socialism died at the hands of its advocates, trying but failing to bring it to terms with reality."--BOOK JACKET

Of free trade and reciprocity( )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author argues in favour of the concept of reciprocity, characterised as pragmatic mercantilism, rather than free trade, seen as unilateral government action against import obstacles. The posture of reciprocity in trade negotiations allows to defend vested domestic interests and to achieve a fair balance of mutual trading advantages.--SCAD summary
