Editorial Reviews

"This book provides a valuable service, translating a vast literature on the economics of European integration into a one-stop collection of easily accessible essays. The authors are all leading scholars in their respective specialties. For anyone interested in why European nations choose to integrate, this is a must read." - Benjamin Jerry Cohen, Department of Political Science, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA"In times where Europe is in deep crisis, where its political vision is being questioned, where its economic performance is miserable, where its economic management is widely criticized, it becomes all the more important to have a well-balanced analysis of Europe's problems. This collection of essays, written by top researchers, is such a much needed thought process. A must reading for all those that have an interest in European affairs." - Alfred Steinherr, John F. Welch College of Business, Sacred Heart University, Luxembourg and Honorary Chief Economist European Investment Bank, Luxembourg "Understanding the process of economic integration requires an 'interdisciplinary' approach bridging different economic sub-disciplines. Yet such an approach is increasingly difficult, as economists have developed their specialized models and modes of thinking. Bridging these sub-disciplines in economics is essential yet also more daunting than ever. That's why this book is particularly welcome. Its collection of chapters by leading scholars provides for a clear and exciting discovery of how economic analyses of different flavors helps in understanding the European integration process. This book will be cherished by scholars and students of European economic integration." - Paul De Grauwe, European Institute, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK
