About this book


This book puts forward a wide-ranging plan for a European confederation which respects individuals' freedom to pursue their economic and political interests whilst bringing European countries closer together. It is argued that unity in diversity is stronger than a potential European super-state run from Brussels. It brings together independent thinkers with a clear and often controversial vision of Europe's future which challenges the reasoning behind monetary and political union and is sure to generate further debate on Europe's future and the role of the state in society.
