Overview

In The Great Interwar Crisis and the Collapse of Globalization, Robert Boyce draws on years of research to challenge the standard accepted narrative of interwar history. His work reopens fundamental debates on the role of economics, political ideologies and racism in shaping the course of events that led from one world war to the next, and explains, for the first time, why the world economic and political systems simultaneously broke down between the wars.

Unpicking the tangled relationship between the interwar political and economic convulsions, Boyce offers readers a new understanding of these events and their connection to our present globalized world. The Great Interwar Crisis raises profound questions about the responsibility of Britain, the United States, and the agents of international business and finance for the unravelling of the Versailles settlement after 1918, the collapse of globalization, and circumstances which ultimately led to the Second World War.
