Synopsis

Examining the 1930s and the different reactions to the crisis, this volume offers a global comparative perspective that includes a comparison across time to give insight into the contemporary global recession. Germany, Italy, Austria, and Spain with their antidemocratic, authoritarian, or fascistic answers to the economic crisis are compared not only to an opposite European perspective - the Swedish example - but also to other global perspectives and their political consequences in Japan, China, India, Turkey, Brazil, and the United States. The book offers no recipe for economic, social, or political action in today's recession, but it shows a wide range of reactions in the past, some of which led to catastrophe.
