"Brexit Unfolded is a must-read for anyone who cares about what happened following the momentous decision Britain took in the 2016 referendum. Grey is not a neutral observer, but his analysis is scholarly and balanced. He writes with engaging clarity as he navigates through toxic headlines and political slogans. It will be a long time before this illuminating account is rivalled." Jonathan Dimbleby, broadcaster and author

This book tells the story of how Brexit unfolded following the 2016 referendum vote to leave the EU. As we lived through the confusing and occasionally dramatic swirl of events, it was often hard to make sense of what was happening. Now we can look back and take stock.

The meaning of Brexit wasn't agreed by the referendum and in consequence was defined through the unfolding process of doing it. As that happened, many of the false claims made for Brexit foundered on the realities of international trade and international relations. Brexit was successful as a campaign movement but was exposed when it had to be turned into practical policy.

So any actual Brexit that might be delivered was inevitably open to the accusation of not being 'true Brexit'. This set the stage for a sulphurous political culture which talked of sabotage, betrayal, enemies of the people, traitors and victims.

The legacy is a deeply divided nation in which many remain unreconciled to Brexit in any form whilst, in a tragic irony, some of those most committed to it are angry and dissatisfied with what it has meant in practice. This book explains how and why that happened.

Chris Grey was Professor of Organization Studies at Cambridge University and a fellow of Wolfson College before moving to Warwick University and then to Royal Holloway, University of London, where he is now an emeritus professor. He has held visiting professorships at Copenhagen Business School and Université Paris-Dauphine and is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences. He has written extensively on Brexit, including an internationally popular and widely praised blog, and is frequently quoted in the media. He has appeared as a Brexit expert on the BBC, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Germany's ARD and elsewhere. He has been invited to give evidence to the Scottish Parliament and his writings appear on the House of Commons Library and Northern Ireland Assembly reading lists.
