The Cost of War
British Policy on French War Debts, 1918–1932

Arthur Turner

Author text to follow


“Turner shows that any chance of a post-war settlement which might have satisfied both honour and the need to sustain the world economy was thwarted because the major debtors and creditors were thrashing about in a crazy web of claim and counter-claim.” TLS

“Historical studies of foreign policy and international relations have too often suffered from a separation of politics and diplomacy from economics and finance. The great merit of Dr Turner’s book is that it sets out to break this down and pay as much attention to the records of the Treasury and the Bank of England as to those of the Foreign Office. The book is as well written as it is researched, and the result is not only a new view of one of the most important issues in inter-war British policy towards France, but at the same time a demonstration of how much is to be gained by making sure, in principle, that as much prominence is given in any study of international relations to economics as to politics and security.” Lord Bullock FBA, St Catherine's College, Oxford
