Historian Dr Robert Saunders and Bodley’s Librarian Richard Ovenden delve into the personal archive of the former Conservative prime minister Edward Heath to explore his personal motivation for taking Britain into Europe, which was based on his own experiences in the 1930s and 1940s.
Saunders is a senior lecturer in modern British history at Queen Mary University of London, specialising in modern British history from the early 19th century to the present and focusing particularly on political history and the history of Britain in Europe. He is the author of Yes to Europe: The 1975 Referendum and Seventies Britain and co-editor with Ben Jackson of Making Thatcher’s Britain.
