The Eurozone is not a mere currency area. It is also a unique polity whose actors span multiple levels (supranational, national, regional, sectoral) and pursue overlapping economic and political objectives. Current thinking on the Eurozone relies on received categories that struggle to capture these constitutive features. This book addresses this analytical deficit by proposing a new approach to the political economy of the Eurozone, which captures economic and political interdependencies across different levels of decision making and sheds light on largely unexplored problems. The book explores the opportunities afforded by the structure of the Eurozone, and lays the foundations of a political economy that poses new questions and requires new answers. It provides categories that are firmly grounded in the existing configuration of the Eurozone, but are a precondition for overcoming the status quo in analysis and policy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This wide-ranging collection of essays brings a new level of sophistication to the analysis of the Eurozone. It considers the complex interrelationships of past and present, of different levels of aggregation and varying interests, to offer an original and searching approach to a vital topic.' Martin Daunton, University of Cambridge
'So far, no country has left the Eurozone or been expelled. Membership keeps expanding despite widespread and well-argued doubts by both economists and political scientists of its long-run feasibility. The accumulated advantages of the common currency as experienced across and within the member countries may well be the key to its continued survival. To sustain the Eurozone, however, policy makers will have to implement the kinds of analyses made both across and within all the social sciences as shown by the authors here.' Larry D. Neal, University of Illinois
