    [From the precis]. This study provides a multi-dimensional analysis of the decision of British policy makers to join the exchange rate mechanism (ERM) of the European Monetary System (EMS) in October 1990, British monetary authorities are obliged to function within several different spheres simultaneously: the marketplace, the international state system, and the British political economy. Each of these spheres has its own distinct dynamics with respect to monetary policy. This study emphasizes the structure of the policy problem posed by changes in international markets, the role of multilateral bargaining within the European Community, and the linkage between domestic politics and British international monetary policy. Comparisons are drawn between the British experience and the adoption of the strong currency option by the French government in March 1983.
