"...a book made in heaven for monetary economists of the comparative-historical-institutional-interdisciplinary persuasion...a wide-ranging collection of essays--every one of them rich in institutional and historical detail...the reader comes away with a deeper understanding of the complex interplay between the macroeconomic crises of the 1920s and 1930s and the political-economic factors behind the widespread restructuring of domestic financial systems in the 1930s." Jane Knodell, Journal of Economic Issues "...highly informative...This is a most useful collection and will prove a fruitful starting point for further comparative study." Theo Balderston, Business History Review "...valuable if not absolutely essential reading for anyone interested in the interwar economy." Rondo Cameron, Journal of Comparative Economics
