Exodus, Reckoning, Sacrifice: Three Meanings of Brexit

Kalypso Nicolaïdis, Professor of International Relations, has published a new book which explores Brexit through a mythic lens.


Exodus, Reckoning, Sacrifice offers a unique take both on Brexit and on the power of mythical stories to frame our democratic conversation. Prof Nicolaidis conjures up three archetypes to explore the competing visions that have clashed so dramatically over the meaning of Brexit, whether as the ultimate demonstration of British exceptionalism, a harbinger of terrible truths or sacrifice on the altar of EU unity.
