"This collection of essays, written between 1964 and 1971, analyzes each successive stage in the deepening crisis of the international monetary system. Mandel offers an impressively clear explanation of a complex topic. Probing below the immediate causes of monetary upheavals, he demonstrates how they reflect broader economic, social, and political problems." -- From the back cover.
