    Is there any literature out there that clearly and comprehensively explains the EU; it's history, economy, laws, treaties, etc? Think I'll spend the next few years reading up on this before the vote.
    You could start with Euromyths, and cancel out the decades worth of bull spouted by the UK press.

    UK press "stories" on Euromyths include...

    "EU law bans church bells"
    "Bombay Mix to be renamed"
    "Condiments must be offered in sachets"


    And the old classic...
    "EC to ban curved cucumbers"
