This book is about Britain's membership to the EEC. It provides a comprehensive rendering of the views and activities of the anti-Market movement and discusses ‘low political’ protest and populism of the kind exercised by Fleet Street crusaders. It argues that constructions of Britishness or national identity, whether reflexive or calculated, dominated both the genesis and the subsequent transmission of anti-Market sentiment. This volume suggests that the impact of the anti-Marketeers was greater than previously suggested but less than its proponents hoped, precisely because the overwhelming reliance upon national sentiment was simultaneously the movement's greatest strength and greatest weakness.
