Richard Griffiths invites the listener to look closer at the history and the underlying reasons behind the main developments of European integration. He passionately presents a history that is richer and intellectually more satisfying than much of the elegiac literature on the European union that passes for history. A solid and humorous account on the making of the union.

No great insights

Nothing much I didn’t know about the history of the EU before listening to this audiobook.Also,it’s a bit outdated.No mention at all of the referendum in 2016 regarding UK membership of the EU.Overall,I’m a bit disappointed.
