Many titles covering this topic focus on a micro-level on the behind-the-scenes political machinations and maneuvering in the build-up to the June 2016 Brexit referendum. An Island Apart looks at the subject from a more macro-European perspective, focusing on the failure of European legal and political institutions in the years leading up to the BREXIT vote, and attempts to put the historic decision into broader contexts for American readers.
In short, the purpose of this book is to take Europe off its four-point Corinthian white marble pedestal. The breathless way in which an American journalist describes the “magic” of their first Eurostar train trip from London to Paris does frankly become tiring when heard repeatedly over the years. Rather than indulge in lazy exercises in wish fulfillment, we should instead view the continent with a critical (and at times admittedly cynical) eye to see what practical and pragmatic lessons it can teach us.
