Europeans use 'social models' to refer to the combination of welfare state, industrial relations, and educational institutions jointly structuring what we can think of as the supply-side of the labor market. The dominant view in controversy over the social models has been that in the name of equity they have impaired the labor market's efficiency, thereby causing unemployment. But doubt is cast on this supply-side-only diagnosis by powerful macroeconomicdevelopments, from the Europe-wide recession following Germany's post-unification boom to the deepest economic crisis since the interwar Great Depression, which the Eurozone's truncated economic governance structure transformed into a sovereign debt crisis, threatening the Euro's and even EU's very survival.This book explores the interaction of Europe's diverse social models with the major developments that shaped their macroeconomic environment over the quarter century since the fall of the Berlin Wall. It concludes that this environment rather than the social models are primarily responsible for the immense social costs of the crisis.

the editors and their team of experts have provided a detailed and critical compendium of European welfare state evolution over the last two decades. The reader can use it either to gain a comprehensive understanding of trends and issues, or as a point of reference for individual nations.
This book can be recommended to scholars and students of different disciplines, from political sciences and law to all strands of economic and social research. It is an indispensable and timely tool for all EU and domestic policy makers interested in shaping the future direction of the evolution of the European social models. The book could be also very useful for all those who are eager to understand the social dimension of the euro crisis.
`[T]his is an impressive volume that intelligently raises and answers a multitude of questions, and which has yet to find robust competition. The book is a must for the library of every political economist, comparative social policy scholar, and historically attuned economist.'Robert Hancke, Council for European Studies Reviews
`This is a fascinating book providing a wealth of information and incisive analysis on how monetary integration affects the evolution of social models in Europe. It is required reading for all those who are eager to understand the social dimension of the euro crisis.'Paul De Grauwe, John Paulson Professor in European Political Economy at the London School of Economics and Political Science
`European Social Models from Crisis to Crisis is an amazing volume with sobering conclusions for European welfare state and integration prospects. It is the first collection in welfare regime studies and comparative political economy to show how the European sovereign debt crisis, with its aftershocks of mass unemployment and rising inequality resulted from how monetary integration unfolded since the 1989 fall of the Berlin Wall. By doing so in a highlystructured fashion, the volume rightly breaks with the convention of 'methodological nationalism.' It's a first rate, timely and utterly indispensable read for EU and domestic policy makers, welfare state students, political economists and EU integration pundits and academics.'Anton Hemerijck, Professor of Institutional Policy Analysis, VU University Amsterdam, and Centennial Professor of Social Policy, LSE
`This volume delivers a pioneering study of the connection between the development of Europe's monetary system and the evolution of European welfare and labour regimes. Analysing the causes and consequences of the recent crisis, Dølvik and Martin conclude that the divergence within the Eurozone is likely to deepen. Clearly, ignoring the crisis' severe social consequences implies risking disintegration of EMU and destabilisation of the EU. To better reconcileEurope's economic and social objectives, EMU needs further reform. Reading this book will help all who want to work on this in either theory or practice."'László Andor, Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, European Commission 2010-2014
impressive volume
