    schema:description "The Macmillan government and Europe is a case-study of democratic government under pressure. It provides valuable insight into the means through which leading politicians and senior officials set about achieving their political goals in the face of concerted opposition, often from within their own ranks. This book provides a timely review of the circumstances under which a Conservative government first began to wrestle with the question of Britain's role in Europe. The emphasis throughout is on how rather than why the change of direction was achieved. The author considers the role of power relationships, the personalities involved, the political devices that they employed and the difficulties and contradictions that they encountered."@en ;
