' ... new, impressive, and illuminating collection of essays from Professor Eichengreen ... His method of argument is rigorous and detached; and the algebra is happily not allowed to overwhelm the sense.' Douglas Jay, Financial Times 'This elegant and useful book belongs on the shelf of all serious students of twentieth-century monetary and financial history.' Journal of Interdisciplinary History 'This book is well written ... No other modern work covers this subject. A student with some knowledge of international finance could follow the argument even without the mathematical and statistical background required to evaluate the models that summarize the basic argument of each chapter.'
