Economic Diplomacy and the Origins of the Second World War
Germany, Britain, France, and Eastern Europe, 1930-1939
David E. Kaiser


Although the political and military aspects of great-power diplomacy in Eastern Europe during the interwar period have been studied extensively, the economic aspects have been relatively neglected. Drawing on documentary material that has only recently been made available, David Kaiser redresses the balance in his discussion of the expansion of German trade with Eastern Europe during the 1930s and the British and French failure to respond to it.

First published in 1981.
