The Economics of the European Union and the Economies of Europe integrates economic analysis, political logic, and historical interpretation to convey an American perspective on the movement towards European integration, the external constraints integration faces, and the interplay of national concerns, both economic and political, within the vision of a united Europe. The first part of the text treats Europe as a natural economic unit, (1945-1989) separated into political units that still remain distinct from one another. The authors focus on the most striking aspects of European integration such as trade, agriculture, and monetary unification. Part II shows the continuing political and economic diversity of Europe by examining the post World War II history of major states and groups of minor states. Knowing the different concerns of the constituent member states is essential for understanding the motivation of the European Unions policies, and for appreciating the extent of its accomplishments. Moreover, the economic logic of European unification is viewed quite differently by each current member state, as well as by potential members. The authors conclude with a discussion of the future of the European Union in an evolving world economy. The Economics of the European Union and the Economies of Europe is an ideal text for economics and political science courses and international business courses.

Industry Reviews

"A new market has emerged recently for executives in companies merging with or being purchased by a European firm....While many of these individuals will have strong business backgrounds, they will not have a similar depth of information on the individual nations which comprise the European Union. Thus for this growing market segment a single text such as the one by Neal and Barbezat will be most welcome." -- Joseph Rallo, College of Business, Ferris State University "An excellent comprehensive text designed for upper-division and MBA students interested in more than a casual review of the European Union, its development, and past, present, and future prosepcts."--Curtis E. Harvey, University of Kentucky "Outstanding discussion of individual EU economy and even better treatment of issues surrounding the formation and expansion of the EU....Good text overall."--William J. Serow, The Florida State University "An ambitious book designed to fit with a variety of possible undergraduate course needs. The problem with teaching a course on Europe today is the absence of a balanced undergraduate text and this book seems to fit the bill....I like the way in which the problems of the European Union are situated within the context of European history. Too often it is easy for American students to be oblivious to what Europeans instinctively know: each nation in the proposed Union has its own distinct economic goals and objectives that are difficult to reconcile. I also like the way that the book captures the dynamics of the evolving European entity.... I think this book should be superior to anything else on the market."--Eugene N. White, Chair and Professor of Economics, Rutgers University "A new market has emerged recently for executives in companies merging with or being purchased by a European firm....While many of these individuals will have strong business backgrounds, they will not have a similar depth of information on the individual nations which comprise the European Union. Thus for this growing market segment a single text such as the one by Neal and Barbezat will be most welcome." -- Joseph Rallo, College of Business, Ferris State University "[My students] will find the country by country second part of the Neal/Barbezat book extremely useful as a starting point for their research....I welcome the availability of a political economy book about the EU that is published in the U.S." -- Michelle Turnovsky, Department of Economics, University of Washington "The Economics of the European Union and the Economies of Europe by Larry Neal and Daniel Barbezat offers a balanced account of the complexities of the EU, including those of its large and intricate bureaucracy."--The Wall Street Journal "An excellent blend of economic theory, institutions, and survey of the current conditions in Europe. A very comprehensive text."--Edward F. Stuart, Northeastern Illinois University
