Overview

From the end of World War I through the early years of the Cold War, international organizations such as the League of Nations, International Labor Organization, the Bank for International Settlements, and the United Nations had a major influence on policies adopted among member nations.

The work reveals explicit normative agendas underlying international political economy, and lessons are distilled for today's debates on international economic integration.
