in The British political elite and Europe, 1959–1984


The writing of this book would not have been achieved without the help and guidance of my former doctoral supervisor, Professor Brendan Evans.

I am particularly indebted to Dr Alison Rodriguez for donating her valuable time to read and provide constructive comments on this work.

Extra special thanks must be extended to Lord Clark of Windermere, the late Lord Howe of Aberavon, the late Sir Gerald Kaufman, Philip Davies MP, Mike Wood MP, the late Stanley Crowther MP, Dr Richard North and Christopher Booker for graciously affording me their time for interviews. I also extend my gratitude to those other contributors with whom I engaged in correspondence over the course of researching this book.

I also wish to express my profound gratitude to the following organisations that have allowed me to access their archives. The staff of the People's History Museum in Manchester, the staff of the Hull History Centre, the staff of the University of Huddersfield Library and Archive, the staff of the University of Leeds library (especially in respect of their Hansard collection), the staff of the British Library in London and Boston Spa, the staff of the British Library Newspapers section in London, Conservative Central Office, and last but not least, the staff of the Bodleian Library, Oxford. These organisations have provided a significant amount of primary source materials upon which this book relies.
