Conclusion: Two Postwar Eras in Comparison: The Lessons of History Applied?
"The book examines recent research into the causes of the depression, notably the role of the gold standard 'system'. It gives equal weight to the political and historical context of economic policy - political attitudes, institutional opinions, strategic considerations, the 'legacies and lessons' of history - to explain the magnitude of the crisis. International cooperation offered the best chance for recovery. Using a wide range of archival sources, the book also contains a lively account of why this failed and its consequences for international relations in the 1930s."--BOOK JACKET.
