The BBC’s Europe editor Gavin Hewitt tells the story of that pillar of the post-war European dream, a shared currency, that has led the continent into its gravest crisis since World War Two. Hewitt shows how easy money led some states into a spending binge, and when the financial crash came to the United States, Europe caught the cold in spectacular fashion, threatening the whole European project.  Hewitt weaves together the stories of ordinary people with the drama and politics of Europe in crisis. He includes interviews with key officials and players and inside accounts of some of the critical meetings.

Hewitt has been BBC Europe editor since 2009, giving him a unique insight into events in Europe over the last few years. He has also worked as a special correspondent for the BBC Ten O’Clock News and Panorama, covering stories all over the world. He is the author of two previous books, one on Terry Waite, and A Soul on Ice: A Life in News, and is the holder of an RTS, a BAFTA and a Broadcast award.
