Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
In January 2009 the Euro Area is ten years old. This major reappraisal by some of the world's leading scholars examines the effects of the European single currency on the member states of the European Union in its first decade.
Main Description
On 1st January 2009 the Euro Area is ten years old. This book examines the effects of the euro as the new European single currency on the member states of the European Union in its first decade. In particular, it places the euro in its wider global, European and domestic contexts; explores its effects on a representative sample of EU member states, including those in the old D-Mark 'Zone', Mediterranean, 'Anglo-Saxon', Nordic and east central Europe and theBaltic; and offers a comparative overview of its effects on financial markets regulation and supervision, wages and collective bargaining, and welfare reform. Grounded in political science, it focuses on questions about Europeanization of member states, power, and convergence/divergence.
Main Description
With Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) the European Union is embarked on a major historic political project of formidable technical complexity. In January 2009 the Euro Area will be ten years old. What does the evidence from the first decade tell us about the significance of the euro for the EU and its member states? This book brings together a range of recognized academic specialists to examine the main political aspects of this question. How, and in what ways, has the euro Europeanized states (members and non-members), their institutions, policies and politics? What have been its effects on the location and use of power? Has the euro generated convergence or divergence? What political patterns can be identified? The book offers the first, in-depth and systematic political analysis of the first decade of the euro. It places the euro in its global and European contexts; offers a set of case studies of its effects on a representative sample of EU member states ('Anglo-Saxon', old 'D-Mark Zone', east central European and Baltic, Mediterranean, and Nordic); and looks at three key sectors (financial markets, wages and collective bargaining, and welfare reform). The book contributes to Europeanization studies, comparative political economy, and studies of Economic and Monetary Union (EMU). It will be of major interest to students of the European Union and European integration, comparative European politics, and area and 'country' studies.
