Bold and ambitious . . . probably the best of the current books about the First World War (Observer)

A remarkable new synthesis which draws on [Tooze's] two particular areas of expertise, Eurasia and especially Germany, and the global financial system revolving around London ... the great strength of his book is that he invites us to look at familiar events in unfamiliar ways ... Tooze's account brims with contemporary resonances ... He is too good a historian, however, to turn this into a simple argument for Keynesian deficit financing ... the general public and policymakers alike will - must! - turn to Adam Tooze for instruction (Brendan Simms Tablet)

It is particularly refreshing to read Adam Tooze's book ... it confirms his stature as an analyst of hugely complex political and economic issues ... Tooze's book covers a huge geographical sweep ... he shows himself a formidably impressive chronicler of a critical period of modern history, unafraid of bold judgements (Max Hastings Sunday Times)

Adam Tooze's masterly book should be required reading for anyone who wants to truly understand the significance of the war ... Extensively researched and written with exemplary clarity, this work is as monumentally ambitious as its subject ... his powers of description and analysis range across all inhabited continents ... this is a valuable look at the ways in which the years after the war came to define the rest of the 20th century (BBC History Magazine)

Interesting, engaging and very readable ... Underpinning this account is an impressive facility with numbers and an ability to analyse them that is increasingly rare among historians nowadays ... he has also delivered, for the first time, ...a clear and compelling rationale as to why it is actually worth going back and looking at the era of the First World War at this particular moment in time ... The Deluge reminds us, then, why we write history and why we should read it (Literary Review)

Tooze made his name with The Wages of Destruction . . . His study of the post-1918 era is equally impressive, explaining why the US and its allies, having defeated Germany, were unable to stabilize the world economy and build a collective security system in Europe (Tony Barber Financial Times BOOKS OF THE YEAR)

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Adam Tooze is Barton M. Biggs Professor of History and Director of International Security Studies at Yale University. He taught for many years at the University of Cambridge. His last book, The Wages of Destruction: The Making and Breaking of the Nazi Economy was universally acclaimed as one of the most important books written on the Third Reich. It was shortlisted for the Duff Cooper Prize and won both the Longman-History Today Book of the Year Prize and the Wolfson Prize for History.

Format: Kindle Edition
Adam Tooze's latest book is another excellent work to be added to his previous ones on the Nazi economy, and the statistical innovation in Germany between 1900 and 1945. Both of these were ground-breaking and were books of unusual originality and meticulous research. Previously at Cambridge University he is now Professor of History at Yale.

In his new book he addresses the events of 1919 to 1939, and asks 'Why did the western powers lose their grip in such a spectacular fashion?'. His thesis is it was America's failure to 'cooperate with the efforts of the French, British, Germans and the Japanese to stabilise the world economy and establish new institutions of collective security ' that caused the problems that emerged after the Great War ended in 1918.

After the Armistice, an error that allowed Germany to claim she had not been defeated, representatives laboured for 6 months before signing what came to be called the Treaty of Versailles. They had faced enormously complex problems in a world fragmented and in turmoil. 65 million men had been mobilised from around the globe. At least 9 million lay dead, and some 21 million more were wounded, diseased or mutilated. It has been estimated that each day deaths on the battlefield were 10 times greater than in the American Civil War. Some 22 million civilians had been killed or wounded. Famine was rife across parts of Europe-Germany was still blockaded. In many capitals there was bitter fighting. At least 14 wars raged. Thousands of square miles of France had been devastated. In Poland, and elsewhere there was rampant inflation-prices in Russia had risen by a factor of 400,000,000! Revolutions broke out in Germany, Hungary, Austria and Poland and in other parts of Europe. 4 Empires had gone.

A brilliant reframing of the early 20th century 20. Dezember 2014
Von greg taylor - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
First, a comment or two on the negative reviews. The negative comments have two point- first, that the book is poorly written and edited and 2. that it is unoriginal in content.
As to the first, I can only disagree. I read nothing but scholarly nonfiction and, while Tooze is not a great writer, he is a fine writer of history.
I did not find that it could have been a much shorter book either. He is covering a lot of territory and he tries to do it justice. The only real problem I had with the editing occurs with Figure 3 on page 357. I have no idea what the Y axis represents. If anyone knows, please leave an explanation in the comments.
As for the content, while I am no expert in this period of history, I found the content to be original and fascinating. Americans of a certain age were told that Wilson tried to change what wars were fought for and how the international community would handle conflict in the aftermath of WW1. Tooze's story is more complicated, nuanced and believable.
Tooze's basic theme is the recasting of American power in the aftermath of WW1. America through its military, economic and cultural strength(by which I mean the appeal of Wilsonianism) was able to provincialize (Tooze's ugly word) Europe. America was economically able to veto or render impotent many of the governmental policies of Britain, France, Italy, Germany, Japan, China and Russia. The fact that there was real differences of opinion between the Congress and the Presidents (Wilson, Harding, Coolidge, Hoover) which made it difficult for the other powers to know what to expect from the U.S. in terms of consistent policy made it that much harder for any of them to know what to do.
I feel that Tooze tells his story with great understanding of the individual politics of each of the above countries. We read how the Irish conflict and the struggle of Indian independence limited Britain's options, of the different parties contending for power in Japan and of the struggles for control by different factions of Chinese warlords and parties. We also get a good sense on how the business and political communities in each country clashed over policy.
As stated above, I am no expert. If there is a book that tells this story better and more comprehensively, I wish the critics would name it so I can read it. What I can tell you is that this book has driven me to read some of his sources. Tooze has awakened my interest in this period of history by exposing my ignorance. For that, I bow in his direction.

The Great War and the Remaking of Global Order 1916-1931 11. Juli 2014
Von Christine M Haderlein - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The Deluge: The Great War and the Remaking of Global Order 1916-1931: As I was a big fan of Tooze’s The Wages of Destruction, I was really looking forward to this book. In it, Tooze advances the thesis that Woodrow Wilson and, to a lesser extent, his successors were attempting to exert a form of global financial hegemony during the latter half of WW1 as the Entente became reliant on American loans. I can’t help but feel that the author bit off more than he could chew-even 500 pages isn’t enough space to cover global economic and political development over such a tumultuous 15 year time period, and he often makes assertions that he doesn’t have enough time or space to fully explore or explain-perhaps he should have focused more on the American-European relationship and left Asia for a follow-on work. Tooze is at his best when discussing socio-political events, but makes some a few military history errors-he refers to the Imperial German Navy as the Kriegsmarine, a name it wouldn’t adopt until the coming of the Third Reich, and classifies the Japanese battleship Mutsu as a cruiser-the later is important because of the Mutsu’s role as a symbol of national pride as ship partially paid for by the donations of school kids. I still highly recommend reading it.

An important book 12. Dezember 2014
Von John Kingery - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It seems the central themes are 1) economic power and public policy shaped the course of The Great War far more than is the conventional wisdom and 2) far from being an isolationist Wilson and successors aggressively sought to achieve hegemony, particularly at the expense of Britain, by ending Imperialism and employing early twentieth century American capitalism to create the great American empire. Much of the book I found compelling, however I felt at times the author made important assertions supporting his themes that did not necessarily follow from the facts as presented. My reading of this period suggests the incredibly complex dynamics preclude attribution to the flow of this history to just these factors. Still, for me a terrific read.

Good But Uneven 6. Januar 2015
Von R. Albin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is either too short or too long. Tooze has set himself the ambitious goal of describing and analyzing the major changes in the world order that occurred during and after WWI. The basic theme is the emergence of the USA as a hegemonic world power and its reluctance to fully participate in that role. About 2/3s to 3/4s of this book cover the period from the middle of WWI to the early 20s with the remainder of the book devoted to selected important aspects of the 20s and the outbreak of the Great Depression and its impact. To really do justice to this topic, however, Tooze would have had to devote as much text to the 20s and onset of the Great Depression as he does to WWI and its immediate aftermath. A more coherent alternative would have been to end this book with the Dawes plan revision of the Versailles settlement.

Tooze does very well in describing the dynamics of the American entry and the complex power politics around the globe. He does very well in trying to provide a global perspective by discussing events in the USA, Russia, and China. Many of these sections are excellent. Tooze does particularly well with the financing of the war, complex events in Eastern Europe and the Brest-Litovsk process, the role of Japan, and features of post-war events, such as the deflation induced by the USA. In general, Tooze provides a nice analysis of how the USA supplanted the European powers as the major world power and the complexities of Wilson's diplomacy. Its fair to remark, however, that little of Tooze's analysis is actually novel. Much of what he describes is well known to scholars in this area and likely to knowledgeable readers as well.

A stable new global order slips through our fingers 20. Dezember 2014
Von M. G. Zink - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The Deluge is an exceptional synthesis of the social, economic, political and military factors that brought the world tantalizingly close to a stable new global order after the first world war, and a clear assessment of the collective failure to achieve it. The portraits drawn of the key players in this drama - famous men like Woodrow Wilson, David Lloyd George, and Vladimir Lenin, and many others less well known - changed my thinking about them, some for the better and some for the worse. Including events in China and Japan makes its a global tale rather than simply a western one, and the book is richer for it. In a year drowning in books about the first world war, The Deluge stands out for the depth and breadth of its ambition, and for the excellence of Tooze's writing.
