About the Authors
  • This book reassesses Western Europe's miraculous economic recovery from World War II and the crisis of 1947. The contributors expose the role of international institutions and contrast the very different national experiences. Their historical analysis has policy relevance--to the debate over the Maastricht Treaty and the Single Market Programme, to the difficulties of adjustment in formerly centrally planned economies, and to reform of the Bretton Woods institutions. This book will be of interest to students of modern European history and to economists.

    • Includes compelling contributions by both economists and historians
    • Exposes the role of international institutions in Europe's postwar economic recovery, and contrasts very different national experiences
    • Has major policy relevance to the debate over the Maastricht Treaty and the Single Market Programme, and to the reform of the Bretton Woods institutions

    "Weurope's Post-War Recovery is a concise exposition of the favorable influence of international institutions on the European economies. It is written by leading specialists who have presented elsewhere their views at greater length. Its central chapters deserve tp reach a wide audience." Pierre Sicsic, Journal of Economic Literature

    "...the volume provides a good overview on contemporary research. As such, it should find a wide readership among economic historians, economists, political historians, and political scientists. Moreover, the book contains some real treasures that make it indispensable for the specialist." Journal of Economic History
