What's New in the Eurozone - Economics and More

There has been a lot in the news lately about hot-button issues in the European Union, especially the Eurozone (i.e. the collective group of countries which use the Euro as their common currency). We can't pretend to be experts on the issues affecting our friends across the pond, but the library catalog does offer some reading material that might help all of us get more clued in!  Here are some of the most recent selections:

What Does Europe Want?: The Union and Its Discontents by Slavoj Zizek, Srecko Horvat

Tragedy of the European Union: Disintegration or Revival? by George Soros with Gregor Schmitz

The Passage to Europe: How a Continent Became a Union by Luuk Van Middelaar

Austerity: The History of a Dangerous Idea by Mark Blyth

Austerity: The Great Failure by Florian Schui

Wages of Rebellion by Chris Hedges    

Putinism: Russia and Its Future With the West by Walter Laqueur
