"One of the world's great historians, unrivalled in his ability to master and synthesize vast historical literatures."–Jeet Heer, New Republic
"Perry Anderson's Ever Closer Union?
provides an elegantly savage critique of the European Union. Many of the arguments and themes may be familiar–years of rowing over Brexit will do that to an audience–but few deliver the lines with the poise of Anderson. What ultimately emerges from the pages of Ever Closer Union?
is the EU not as its defenders imagine it to be, but as it really is: an oligarchic institution, built over and against the peoples of Europe."–Tim Black, Spiked
