From the Publisher"...a quite useful reference work, in addition to its importance as a description and analytical interpretation of the impact of warfare...all of the essays are written clearly, present considerable data, and are analytically sophisticated. This is a superb collection on a very important topic, and will repay reading by all economic historians."

"...it is as a synthesis of the major economic statistics of the various powers of the war that the study is most valuable for understanding World War I. The amount of information about the economies of the states examined, for instance, is staggering and oftentimes fascinating. In addition, the book contains nearly 150 figures and tables that relate useful data, covering a wide range of subjects: GDP; battle and non-battle deaths; labor statistics; inflation; industrial and agricultural production--and a whole host of other interesting and important economic statistics."
