This chapter serves as a general introduction to the theme of this book. We will do this in two parts followed by a conclusion. In Section 1, we offer a succinct reconstruction of what has happened at the European Union (EU) level in euro-crisis law. After over half a decade of legal measures and prolific commentary on those measures, it is helpful to stand back and take stock. In Section 2, we present the particular perspective adopted by this book. Its core argument is that an overall and ongoing assessment of euro-crisis measures, especially by including the national level, is an important and distinctive contribution to eurocrisis legal scholarship. In the conclusion, we will consider whether euro-crisis law, although a fitting label to capture the conditions of its production and some parts of its application, has by now mainly become simply the macroeconomic law of the EU.
