Mark Leonard believes in Europe with a faith rarely seen in Britain. In Why Europe Will Run the 21st Century he challenges us to regard the European Union not as a tangle of bureaucracy but as a revolutionary model for the future and to remember that, founded to protect us against war, it is now key to the spread of democracy.
