The Trouble with Europe by the respected economist Roger Bootle is ever so timely written in a faultlessly reasonable manner, this makes his criticisms about the EU even more powerful.”—The Times


“An outstanding, grown-up account of the failures of the European Union. Bootle is certainly no little Englander, but his argument is calm, conversational, rigorous and – quite remarkably for an economist – entirely free of bafflegab. Engaging and absorbing, here is an eye-opening book that will inspire you to think through the issues clearly – without starting a saloon-bar brawl.”—The Telegraph


‘Here it is – a book for every faint-heart who thinks this country could never prosper outside the European Union. A timely and balanced analysis.’ —Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of UK


‘Few voters feel warmly about ever closer union; many would agree with Mr Bootle that this aspiration of the original Treaty of Rome should be formally ditched. The EU and the euro will get into trouble again—and the outcome next time could be even worse.’ —Economist


‘Roger Bootle perceptively analyzes what is wrong with the European Union as presently constituted, both politically and economically; what reforms are needed to make it wise for the UK to remain a member; and how we can most sensibly conduct ourselves outside the EU, should those reforms not be undertaken. It is essential background reading for any future in/out referendum.’—Rt Hon Nigel Lawson, former Chancellor of the Exchequer.

Making a Success of Brexit and Reforming the EU is the extensively revised and expanded new edition of the acclaimed The Trouble with Europe. Following Britain’s vote to leave the EU and the ensuing uncertainty in both Europe and the UK, here, one of Britain’s best known economists Roger Bootle, charts a way forward for all.

For Leavers and Remainers alike, this book analyses the choices the UK faces about its relationship with the EU – and the rest of the world. It discusses the key issues concerning a ‘hard’ or ‘soft’ Brexit, Free Trade Agreements, the Single Market and the Customs Union, as well as the principles and pitfalls of the negotiating process.

Meanwhile, with or without Brexit, the EU faces an existential crisis. It needs to choose between three different paths: radical reform, further integration or break-up. This book assesses the costs and benefits of each, concluding with a version of how the world would look without the EU.

Bootle’s exemplary outline of the origins and historical context of the EU is retained from the previous edition, where he acknowledges the remarkable achievements of the EU, before laying out the shortcomings which have led to the parting of the ways with Britain.

This is the essential read as the Brexit negotiations progress.
