This book is the first comprehensive political and economic account of the birth and development of the Euro. Today the Euro is the supranational currency for sixteen European countries and the worlds second-largest reserve currency. David Marsh tells the story of the rivalries, intrigues, and deal making that brought about a currency for Europe, and he analyzes the achievements and shortcomings of its first decade of existence.

While the Euro represents a remarkable triumph of political will, great pressures are building on the single currency. Drawing on more than 100 interviews with leading figures associated with the Euro, and scores of secret documents from international archives, Marsh underscores the Euros importance for the global economy, in particular for U.S. and British economic and political agendas.

Hidden facts and fresh insights from The Euro:
  • How the legacy of France and Germanys tortuous relations affects the Euro
  • Why the United Kingdom is unlikely to accept the Euro before 2025
  • The impact on the Euro of the U.S. credit crisis
  • How the Euro has rebounded against the aspirations of its founders
  • How Italy and Spain have massively lost competitiveness
  • Why radical changes must be adopted to prevent a European upheaval

"An amazingly detailed and thoroughly readable account of the long march to the Euro. This is the stuff of a political thriller: the deal-making behind a currency constructed not just as a financial instrument but also as a way of overcoming centuries of conflict. Anyone interested in European politics and economics, as well as Europe's place in the wider world, would enjoy it."—George Soros
