About this book


This book examines the behaviour and performance of key European economies since the end of the Second World War. The unifying theme of the book is the way in which the economies concerned have experienced and dealt with growth, stagnation and structural change. As well as providing an overview of post-war experience, each chapter identifies particular policy issues of major significance to the economy in question.
