About the Authors
  • Dr. Theo Balderston explores the relevance of the politics of the Weimar Republic to its economic history. Tracing the origins, political fragility and eventual destruction of the unstable government in terms of the economic realities of interwar Germany, this book provides a comprehensive survey of sources otherwise inaccessible to students. Covering the Peace Treaty and reparations payments, the spiralling inflation of the twenties and the slump which led to the collapse of the republic, this is an indispensable guide to an extremely significant period in European economic history.

    • Comprehensive survey of significant period in European economic history
    • Makes accessible sources previously unavailable to the student, having either been too technical, or in German
    • Detailed glossary of economic terms and political information to help the reader

    Reviews & endorsements

    "In this book, Theo Balderston has achieved a feat by summarizing the major historiographical issues of Weimar economic history in just a hundred pages." H-NET

    "Useful....Balderston demonstrates an admirable command of the relevant literature in both English and German." History

    "What I did appreciate is that Balderston, though not totally neutral, gives a balanced account of conflicting views. His readers are not faced with an authoritative story but are made familiar with different, often contradictory, explanations of various authors.... a very useful introduction into the turbulent economic and political events that shaped the Weimar economy." EH.Net
