Commenting on the quality of the contributors when opening the conference on which these books are based, the former Governor of the Bank of England, Sir Edward George, said `I cannot remember ever before having had such a galaxy of academic economist and central banking superstars gathered together under one roof!'' Monetary History, Exchange Rates and Financial Markets is an impressive collection of original papers in honour of Charles Goodhart's outstanding contribution to monetary economics and policy. Its contributors - eminent international academics, central bankers and financial market regulators - provide an insight into an extensive set of issues including: * the role of the history of economic thought in modern macroeconomics * Charles Goodhart's contribution to British monetary history * lessons from the history of financial crises * customer trades and extreme events in foreign exchange markets * trading activity, volatility and liquidity in foreign exchange markets * competition, stability and financial regulation. Charles Goodhart has written extensively on many of these topics and has become synonymous with his field; the chapters within this book offer a summary of current thinking on his own research subjects and include perspectives on controversies surrounding them. Integrating clarity of economic thinking with the practicalities of policy, this arresting book will be invaluable to economists, central bankers and students of monetary economics. The companion volume examines central banking, monetary theory and practice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`In sum, the books thoroughly and practically address central banking and monetary policy issues which are clearly and superbly exposed by academic, economist and central banking superstars. . . both volumes are certainly recommended.' -- Gabriel Gomez Giglio, Journal of International Banking Law
`The editor has succeeded nicely in the difficult task of organizing the festschrift in a constructive way. The selection of commentators contributes to that . . . All in all, I expect this festschrift to have a half-life much longer than the average one. It deserves it.' -- Lars Jonung, EH.Net
