Europe in Crisis
The current crisis in Europe has often been depicted as an economic/currency crisis that poses a danger for European economic unity and its common currency, the Euro. Monetary union, it has been argued, has outrun fiscal union, depriving the EU of an important means of dealing with the pressures on the currency. It has also been understood as a crisis of governance, of institutions with the decision-making capacity to deal with the crisis. Finally, the impact of the economic emergency has altered the political landscape in different EU countries in different ways. The crisis appears to be creating changes that will endure, but cannot yet be predicted entirely. This series fills an important gap in scholarship by supporting a level of analysis that is more thoughtful than the periodic media coverage and less complicated than much of the deep theoretical analysis. These books are timely and concise with the promise of a long lifetime of relevancy.
