A Chronological History of the European Union, 1946-2001

Front Cover
Edward Elgar, Jan 1, 2002 - Business & Economics - 331 pages
'The review of the first edition (Choice, April 2000) found it thorough and well written, and that its coverage of events was fuller as it drew nearer to the present. the latter is even truer of this edition - as the EU moves toward true integration, there is much more detail to report, especially as to monetary integration. This edition adds 84 pages in covering 1999-2001. . . a very useful work, especially for anyone interested in the details of the integration process. Summing Up: Highly recommended.' - P.W. Wilkin, Choice Acclaim for the first edition: 'This reference work should prove invaluable to students, academics and professionals interested in the development of the European Union.' - European Access This fully revised and updated edition of a seminal reference work provides a detailed chronological account of the development of European integration. the history of Economic and Monetary Union (EMU), which began immediately after World War II, is recounted in the form of a descriptive summary of the most significant events, measures, arrangements and conferences. the chronology concludes at the end of 2001 with what is arguably one of the most important events in European history; the introduction of the euro notes and coins in twelve nation states. Throughout, Wim Vanthoor offers a detailed yet concise account of the evolution of the economic and political ideas which have culminated in this defining moment. the book is interspersed with quotations from the addresses, orations and comments of politicians and those closely involved with the process of European integration. This accessible book will be essential reading for anyone with an interest in the history of European integration.
