"The book explores the interesting question of why the Faroe Islands and Greenland opted to stay outside the European Union (EU) at a time when most European countries aspired to join the EU before an era of growing extremism and opt-out debates. Although the focus of the analysis is on the positions taken by the Faroe Islands and Greenland, there is also some discussion of a similar attitude that has prevailed in Iceland".
