About this book

Introduction

This book examines Conservative backbench debate on European integration and British relations in the Middle East between 1948 and 1957. In seeking to compare the impact of a loose affiliation of Conservative MPs, an organized faction of longstanding and an ad-hoc pressure group, the text concentrates upon the Europeanists, the Suez Group and the Anti-Suez Group and considers their attempts to influence British foreign policy, using interviews with former parliamentarians and contemporary sources, published and unpublished.
