About the Author

Stephen Barber is Research Director of the European Research Forum at London Matropolitan University.


"The City was slow to wake up to the implications of the European single financial market, and even now the impact is not well understood. These essays help to describe the way the City is adapting to the sometimes conflicting pressures of globalisation and the EU. It is a fascinating story." Sir Howard Davies
