Moss offers a radically new interpretation of the European Community and Monetary Union as a neo-liberal project. The book places EC development in the context of the post-war long wave, labor mobilization and political class conflict, stressing its role as a Hayekian federation or dike to dampen growth and defeat inflationary working-class demands. The assessment is sustained by a study of EC origins, constitution and policies, econometric evidence, a critique of existing literature and member-state case studies.

'This is a useful study which offers a critical and original assessment of the process of European integration. Bernie Moss tackles the neoliberal roots of the European project from the Treaty of Rome onwards. He shows how the EU pro-business agenda has been sustained over time and analyses its impact on the member states' economies. This approach is further substantiated by a number of contributions on national contexts written by a group of experts. This work should be welcome by students and scholars working on the EU. It is published at a crucial time following the enlargement to Central European countries and the debate on the European Constitution. This well documented and challenging study provides key explanations to the social and economic problems that the EU is currently facing.' - Dr Philippe Marliere, Senior Lecturer in French and European Politics, University College London, UK

'This book is a very good analysis of the European venture and its remorseless drive to ever-closer union, particularly via monetary union. It brings it all down to basic economic dynamics, rather than the naive arguments for and against.' - Austin Mitchell, MP, Socialist Campaign Group News



'Monetary Union in Crisis is a timely reminder that many of the problems which the European Union faces are even more deep-seated that the current rows over the EU's Constitution and its budget.' - Councillor John Mills, Camden New Journal
