With the threat of Britain leaving the EU, now is the time for an obituary for the EU as an institution. In this short, rigorously argued book John R Gillingham tells the history of an idea that has soured and withered away. From its origins as a means to protect Europe, to the formation of the common market, it has now become an instrument for a federal Europe that no body wants, as well as a series of costly and ineffectual institutions that do nothing except leak money. Here, Gillingham reveals the failures at the origin to set out what the EU was; the role that Delors played in creating the neoliberal monster it is today and the contemporary crises: refugees, Ukraine and Greece - that the current institution fails to deal with.
