A fantastic starting point.

The European Union - Duncan Watts

Overall a vastly enlightening book that manages to put a complex body into an easily digestible format. This would be a fantastic starting point for anyone with no prior knowledge of the EU. Considering it was published in 2008 and is now 8 years old, a lot of its content is still surprisingly relevant. It gives a good account of both eurosceptic and pro-european viewpoints. My plan now is to read one or two other books including a more recent title and a few articles before I fully make my mind up over the referendum. My hope is to put forward an impartial guide shortly before the 23rd June, to give anyone still neutral, a decent account of the pros and cons of leaving/remaining.



This is a tough choice and one that I'm not surprised to find that there are pretty strong arguments on either side.
