about

This book presents a comprehensive study of the most famous and spectacular instance of inflation in modern industrial society--that in Germany during and following World War I. A broad, probing narrative, this book studies inflation as a strategy of social pacification and economicreconstruction and as a mechanism for escaping domestic and international indebtedness. The Great Disorder is a study of German society under the tension of inflation and hyperinflation, and it explores the ways in which Germany's hyperinflation and stabilization were linked to the Great Depressionand the rise of National Socialism. This wide-ranging study sets German inflation within the broader issues of maintaining economic stability, social peace, and democracy and thus contributes to the general history of the twentieth century and has important implications for existing and emergingmarket economies facing the temptation or reality of inflation.
Gerald D. Feldman is at University of California, Berkeley.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a long-awaited book. It brings to a culmination a quarter-century of exhaustive research on one of the key periods of twentieth-century German history....A monumental work that rests on a rock-solid foundation of documentation drawn from more than fifty archives and otherrepositories....Feldman's study deservedly becomes the standard work on the subject in any language and promises to remain so for a long time."--Journal of Interdisciplinary History
