Review quote

"...this is well researched and, in view of today's Russian problems, also a timely publication, a tribute to a historiography, which, in the editor's words, stresses human decision making as a crucial factor in our past." German Studies Review "...the articles offer interesting insights into details of how often-neglected states responded to the problems of the early 1920s." The Journal of American History "...all specialists on interwar history will be grateful (once again) to Carole Fink and her colleagues." Stephen White, Slavic Review "Overall, they reflect the praiseworthy trend of the latest scholarship in this area which has concentrated on the interplay of business and politics. The oil question, for example, is given a high profile...this volume is an unexpectedly rich research guide to international affairs in the early 1920s." Alan Cassels, The International History Reviewshow more
