Money, Payment Systems and the European Union: The Regulatory Challenges of Governance now available from Cambridge Scholars Publishing

Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Money, Payment Systems and the European Union: The Regulatory Challenges of Governance edited by Gabriella Gimigliano.
