London: George Allen & Unwin l td., (1953). Second Printing. Pp. (4),-464. 8vo, blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Sir Halley Stewart Publications, number 4. "For this translation, Professor Bresciani-Turoni thoroughly revised his celebrated work 'Le Vicende del Marco Tedesco', and added an appendix on German economic conditions in the years following the monetary reform, 1923-24. As it now stands, the book gives at once the most exhaustive analysis of economic conditions in Germany under the Great Inflation and some illuminating discusions applying to inflation conditions generally. The analysis is amply supportedby statistical material which, coming from the hand of a statistical econo mist of international reputation, is itself most instructive." - from the dj. Contents: 1.
