Beschrijving

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.

Recensies uit de pers

'Als ik Richard Griffiths moet geloven is Europese integratie één van de positievere ontwikkelingen van de afgelopen eeuw geweest. Zo ver wil ik zelf niet gaan, maar dit college is een mooie historische vertelling over Europa. Zijn engelse engels vond ik erg prettig om naar te luisteren. Duidelijk, rustig en goed te begrijpen voor niet-engelstaligen.' (Joyce de Bree, 12 mei 2006)
