   schema:description ""Britain's policy is analysed between 1964 when Harold Wilson took office, and 1967 when the French President General de Gaulle vetoed Britain's membership application for a second time. Britain's Policy Towards the European Community examines the rationale behind Britain's approach, explaining why Wilson launched an initiative for membership when the French seemed certain to obstruct. Helen Parr considers Wilson's handling of the Cabinet, and elucidates Britain's diplomacy towards the Six, placing British policy towards Europe within the context of Britain's foreign policy transition from a global to a regional role."@en ;
