CHOICE Review

This collection of essays is based on speeches presented at a 1999 conference in honor of Jean Monnet--one of the architects of what is now the European Union (EU). Opening chapters describe his background and some of his contributions to developments in Europe up to his death in 1979. The conversational tone of the original lectures continues throughout the book. Chapters dealing with social policies, equality, and workers' rights touch on issues often ignored in discussions about the costs and benefits of economic integration. Other chapters explore relations between Europe and the US and suggest that the two regions have a common interest in areas such as foreign policy and defense. Chapters on the role of the US dollar and the euro conclude that it is too soon to judge the long-term impact of this new currency on the place of the dollar in international trade and finance. Since this volume is primarily an introduction to the EU for a broad readership, a map and population data would have been helpful additions. Students and faculty in international economics and European studies will also find this book a useful source of background information about the development of the EU.
