Few have so eloquently expressed Britains's relationship with Europe as Winston Churchill: "We are in Europe, but not of it" Professor Bogdanor series of lectures examines the nature of Britain and Europe' relationship and more importantly explains how it came to be. By teasing apart the subtle distinctions in history, national identity and politics, Professor Bogdanor trace the sometimes tumultuous relationship from the post war era right up to the modern day. The Lectures will also examine the necessities of trade and politics that have affected this relationship over the years and inform our current states. An essential series for euro-philes and euro-sceptics alike.

The first lecture seeks to contrast Britain and the Continent in terms of history and institutions, contrasts emphasised by the Second World War.
