PressestimmenReview of the hardback: 'Central banks play as central a role in economic welfare and financial stability today as they have ever played. And globalization makes cooperation among monetary and financial authorities even more crucial than before. This volume throws valuable new light on the way cooperation has been conducted in the past and on some of the key issues that will confront central bank collaboration in the future.' Sir Andrew Crockett, President, JP Morgan Chase International Review of the hardback: 'This clear and well researched book on 130 years of central bank cooperation will be a unique tool for historians and economists. It doesn't discuss the desirability of cooperation but it explains how it worked (or, in some cases, did not work).' Jacques de Larosiere, Former President, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development Review of the hardback: 'It offers a valuable insight into the world of central bank cooperation, both past and future, and how the past is shaping the future.'
