A hundred years ago, the London foreign exchange market played second fiddle to more important centres in New York, Paris and Berlin. This illuminating volume tells the history of this successful market in detail for the first time, examining the factors that led to the transformation of London's foreign exchange market from a backwater into the world's pre-eminent currency trading centre. An assessment is made of the contributions made by the key players, including banks, brokers and the Bank of England."--Jacket." ;
