9780521416085: British Protectionism and the International Economy: Overseas Commercial Policy in the 1930s

After more than three-quarters of a century of free trade, Britain re-adopted protectionist policies early in the depression of the 1930s. Tim Rooth's comprehensive study examines the forces behind the abandonment of free trade and the way that Britain then used protection to bargain for trade advantages in the markets of her chief suppliers of food and raw materials. The retreat from multilateral trade policies, the growth of protection and the concomitant development of regional economic groupings has obvious parallels with current developments in the world economy.

Book Description:

Tim Rooth's comprehensive 1993 study examines the forces behind the British abandonment of free trade in the 1930s and discusses the way that Britain used protection to bargain for trade advantages in the markets of her chief suppliers of food and raw materials. This historical study has obvious parallels with current developments in world trade.

Review:

"...the study makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of the 1930s." American Historical Review

"This thorough account of the complexities and frustration of bilateral trade negotiations in conditions of widespread unemployment is a moral tale for policymakers and a valuable contribution to the history of international economic policy." Journal of Economic History

"...a most learned book, performing a task which had to be done at some time. Specialists will be most grateful for it, and others will gain some insight into the narrow world of the 1930's." Sidney Pollard, The International History Review

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. When, in the winter of 1931-2, Britain abandoned first the gold standard and then free trade, two potent symbols of her nineteenth-century international economic predominance had gone within the space of little more than six months. Tim Rooth s comprehensive 1993 study in the political economy of protectionism examines the forces behind the abandonment of free trade and the way that Britain then used protection to bargain for trade advantages in the markets of her chief suppliers of food and raw materials. Dr Rooth also examines Britain s economic relations with Germany and the USA in the deteriorating international political situation of the late 1930s. The retreat from multilateral trade policies, the growth of protection and the concomitant development of regional economic groupings have obvious parallels with current developments in the world economy.
