    Adam Tooze is a economic historian who deals with myths and realities of modern history His use of statistical analysis lends credence to his challenges of historical orthodoxy I was deeply impressed by his other book, The Wages of Destruction, which addressed popular conceptions of the Nazi state Nazi propaganda, and indeed a popular idea about the Nazis, was that they were a cruelly efficient state Tooze instead looks at their economic statistics and finds pervasive inefficiency Overprodu Adam Tooze is a economic historian who deals with myths and realities of modern history His use of statistical analysis lends cr...

    Outstanding Tooze has amassed and presented a tremendous amount of political and economic information to buttress his arguments about how complex the period between 1916 and 1931 was First he explains the financing and end game of the the war This forms the foundation for the real argument, that any view of the period from 1918 to the mid thirties as fairly consistent between the wars is missing the convulsions that played out...

    Ambitious, and with a breathtaking scope, I can t help but feel that Tooze bit off a bitthan he could chew even a 500 page book isn t adequate space to cover the development of the entire international order from 1916 through 1933 His characterization of Wilson as a man seeking to assert American fiscal hegemony may be criticized by some, but I find it hard to di...

    This book is an ambitious interpretive history of WW1 and its impact The starting point is that claim that we have come to understand the war from the perspective of it being followed by WW2 and the Cold War, leading to a modern world that is hugely different from the world of 1914 and dominated eventually by the United States after the fall of the Soviet Union Adam Tooze s claim is that course of world history was far from certain after WW1 and that world observers saw matters very differentl This book is an ambitious interpretive history of WW1 and its impact The starting point is that claim that we have come to understand the war from the perspective of it being followed by WW2 and the Cold War, leading to a modern world that is hugely different from the world of 1914 and dominated eventually by the United States after the fall of the Soviet Union Adam Tooze s claim is that course of world history was far from certain after WW1 and that world observers saw matters very differently from how they eventually turned out The book then attempts to explain how the world got from 1916 to the present or really 1931 while steering clear of the story that has become accepted and often taken for granted.Tooze argues that the key players involved in this compl...

    Great book hugely informative, with the material dramatically presented and almost no dull patches Some of the very fascinating events that Tooze describes are the following 1 Up to mid 1916 the Entente borrowed money through J.P Morgan mainly, from the US s private capital market, thereby committing a substantial part of the US economy to the Entente s war effort, without the US government s permission...
