The UK Government Guide to European Union Negotiations Published

As Britain now prepares for its most crucial negotiations in a generation, IndieBooks is republishing the UK Government’s official Guide to European Union Negotiations.

Originally commissioned in 1996, the Guide explains how the EU works, how to build alliances and develop successful strategies, and the most effective negotiating and lobbying techniques – all of which remain relevant to the Brexit deal-making that will follow Article 50.

The Guide’s author James Humphreys was himself an EU negotiator and more recently visiting Professor of Government at City University. He has contributed a new preface to set the Guide in the context of Brexit. In it he says:

“The world has moved on since the Guide was first published. But its key messages – about how to secure the best possible deal from Europe – are if anything more important than ever. Brexit is the defining political and economic decision of our times. The Guide provides some sharp insights about the realities to come.”

Unusually for a government publication, the Guide has a lively and engaging style, making it an ideal introduction for the Euro-novice. It also includes specially-commissioned cartoons by Banx of the Financial Times.
IndieBooks will also soon be publishing the definitive account of the EU Referendum, ‘Explaining Cameron’s Catastrophe’, by Sir Robert Worcester, the Founder of MORI, and his colleagues. This will be the latest in the influential ‘Explaining…” series, including 2016’s ‘Explaining Cameron’s Comeback’ on the 2015 election.
