Understanding the Great Depression has never been more relevant than in today's economic crisis. This edited collection provides an authoritative introduction to the Great Depression as it affected the advanced countries in the 1930s. The contributions are by acknowledged experts in the field and cover in detail the experiences of Britain, Germany, and, the United States, while also seeing the depression as an international disaster. The crisis entailed the collapse of the international monetary system, sovereign default, and banking crises in many countries in the context of the most severe downturn in western economic history. The responses included protectionism, regulation, fiscal and monetary stimulus, and the New Deal. The relevance to current problems facing Europe and the United States is apparent.

The chapters are written at a level which will be comprehensible to advanced undergraduates in economics and history while also being a valuable source of reference for policy makers grappling with the current economic crisis. The book will be of interest to modern macroeconomists and students of interwar history alike and seeks to bring the results of modern research in economic history to a wide audience. The focus is not only on explaining how the Great Depression happened but also on understanding what eventually led to the recovery from the crisis. A key feature is that every chapter has a full list of bibliographical references which can be a platform for further study.

Review:


"This is not an ordinary edited volume. Every paper seems to have been specially written for it and fits the title. Each views an aspect of the interwar era in light of theoretical and policy issues related to our own post-2008 depression, and draws explicit lessons... the volume includes many of the best economic historians working on the interwar era, scholars worth reading... all of the papers are admirably up to date on the current macroeconomics literature, including recent attempts to accounts for events of the 1930s in terms of real business cycle and New Keynesian models. Monetary policy at the zero bound, hysteresis in the natural rate of unemployment, recovery from a financial crisis and regulatory reforms, the euro and the gold standard -- these and many other topics are well-covered." --EH.Net
