European monetary integration from the European Monetary System to Economic and Monetary Union, 2nd ed.:
This is the second edition of a much-respected book on the history, theory and practice of monetary integration in Europe. Starting with a brief history of European monetary integration up to the start of the European Monetary System (EMS) in 1978, the authors go on to examine in more detail the workings of the EMS, including an analysis of the speculative attacks between 1992-95. The next part of the book is an account of the economics of monetary union, substantially revised from the first edition of the book, with a fresh look at the costs and benefits, the changing relationships between economic and monetary integration and the global implications of EMU. The final part of the book critically examines the specific steps towards monetary union starting with the Delors Report before going on to the Maastricht Treaty and the convergence criteria, and finally to the establishment of a European System of Central Banks. The concluding chapter assesses the outlook for EMU.
