Abstract

and the benefits of a wartime surge in exports did not protect them against the misconceptions that produced willing deflation, economic contraction, and depression in interwar Europe and a global depression. Mark Metzler has recently provided a detailed account of Japanese experience in restoring the gold standard.4 Bryan's epilogue might have provided more material on both Argentina and Japan, and how they seemed to replicate the misconceptions prevalent in Europe. The European propagation of gold standard beliefs, promoting the creation of independent central banks as autonomous institutions to guarantee currency stability, remains an area for further research into the unequal relations between European and developing countries. Bryan's analysis of the policy debates in the 1890s is a valuable contribution, demonstrating how distinctly national interests prevailed in decisions on when and how to join the international gold standard. kenneth mouré University of Alberta Environmental Histories of the Cold War.
