This clear introduction to a historically important transition examines what stimulated the move toward the European Economic and Monetary Union, the earlier attempts at creating an E.M.U., and the present situation. Coffey assesses the Euros qualities as a currency, examining the institutional arrangements (notably the European Central Bank and the European System of Central Banks), the policy choices, and the possible implications for countries both inside and outside the Euro zone.
