Britain's departure from the European Union is filled with propaganda and myth but the risks are very real. With the help of constitutional and trade experts, political journalist Ian Dunt explains why exiting the EU is likely to make the UK poorer, leave industries like pharmaceuticals and finance struggling to operate, and possibly break up the UK.
This is the first full public exploration of Brexit shorn of the wishful thinking of its supporters in the media and Parliament. It is the real picture of a country about to undergo a sudden self-inflicted isolation.
Ian will be discussing his book and its implications with Guardian journalist Rafael Behr.
