    DescriptionGlobalisation is a choice, not a fact. It is the result of policy decisions and the politics that shape them. Jeffry A. Frieden's insightful history explores the golden age of globalisation during the early years of the twentieth century, its swift collapse in the crises of 1914-1945, the divisions of the Cold War world and the turn again towards global integration at the end of the century. His history is full of character and event, as entertaining as it is enlightening.

    Review quote
    "...one of the most comprehensive histories of modern capitalism yet written." The New York Times Book Review "Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it. That is the lesson of this well-timed account of the recent history of capitalism from the first Golden Age of globalisation in the late 19th century to the present, uncertain juncture." Financial Times "Frieden has a wonderful way of weaving together politics and economics, past and present in an accessible narrative that is... even-handed and objective." Washington Post"
