"The analysis of the role of the Conservative 'Europeanists', together with broader Conservative attitudes to European integration and its emerging institutions, provides an illuminating perspective on enduring Tory attitudes to Europe. The book examines the views and activities of the Suez Group and reveals that this faction occupied a more important position within the party than has been appreciated hitherto. Drawing on previously unavailable private papers, the part played by the Anti-Suez Group in halting Eden's military gamble in November 1956 is also explored."--BOOK JACKET." ;
