Britain faces its most important political decision for hundreds of years - whether or not to join a common European currency. Many believe this would lead inexorably to a European superstate, so it is timely to re-examine the implications of the size of political groupings, whether they are states, nations or federations. This book shows that throughout history people who have lived in small states, where political leaders are accessible rather than remote, are happier, more peaceful, more creative and more prosperous. Kohr originated the concept of the human scale, an idea which was later popularized by his friend E.F. Schumacher, notably in his book Small is Beautiful.
