Publication Abstract: It is impossible to understand contemporary British politics without a comprehension of the EU's role in shaping political agendas, influencing policy developments and framing political debates. While there is an extensive literature on Britain's behaviour in the EU, there are few book-length accounts of the domestic impact of EU membership. This volume both describes and explains how EU membership has affected the domestic political arena in Britain - one of the EU's largest and most influential Member States. Drawing on fresh empirical evidence collected by experts in their respective fields, this volume provides a state of the art account of how membership has affected the institutions of central, devolved and local governance, the activities of organized interests, and major areas of public policy.
