'Feldman has single-handedly generated a flood of printed paper on the inflation which would have impressed even the President of the Weimar Reichsbank ... The Great Disorder is hyper-history ... It is a remarkable achievement, which comprehensively demolishes the "positive" view of the inflation, but leaves tantalizingly open the question of whether or not an alternative policy would have been adopted.' Times Literary Supplement By any standards, this is a monumental work. Its imposing format - over a thousand pages, each with two columns of text, well chosen illustrations and many helpful tables - is more than matched by the formidable arsenal of scholarship deployed to sustain it. This is a definitive work which crowns decades of endeavour. His book must be required reading for any scholar working in the field of twentieth-century German history. A.J. Nicholls, St Antony's College, Oxford, German Historical Institute, London, Bulletin, Volume XVIII, No. 2 May 1996 The Great Disorder is his opus magnum on the topic. The work is organized chronologically. The author successfully weaves vivid descriptions of social developments and momentous cultural change into his narrative ... there is never an embarrassment of riches in this narrative ... Eloquence, wit, and irony make this an eminently readable book; a unique familiarity with the archival material and academic literature allow Feldman to arrive at conclusions of rare judiciousness and balance. The Great Disorder is likely to remain the most comprehensive history of the great German inflation for a long time. Hans-Joachim Voth, Nuffield College, Oxford, German History, Vol. 14, No. 1, '96 the reader ... has probably the most complete account of German economic history for the decade beginning with the Grat War and ending in the Great Inflation ... Feldman has written a brilliant synopsis of a complex of politico-economic processes which set Germany on the path to hyperinflation. Feldman's own solution to this problem has resulted in what is no doubt going to become a classic for the next generation. His analysis combines intriguing new insights with the deployment of an almost unsurmountable amount of archival evidence, in the process revealing remarkable skills at explaining German social norms and institutions to an Anglo-Saxon audience in a very easy and natural way. Albrecht Ritschl, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Financial History Review

A great book to lose yourself in 8. Oktober 2000
Von Dan Lobnitz - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This is great, hard-core history.
While this book probably won't appeal to the average run-of-the-mill history buff, it will attract anyone who wants to lose himself in a vary narrow, hyper-specialized area of history.
In many ways the economic disaster of Germany between 1914-1924 reworked the foundation of modern finance. For the first time in western history a political system was literally straightjacketed into salvaging an impossible economic situation. This book goes into exhaustive detail contrasting the unenlightened economic policies of the Allies to the increasingly discouraged Germans who desperately wanted to bring order to their lives.
Feldman does a great job helping the reader tune into the magnitude of the hopelessness that the German people felt regarding the impossibility of satisfying unpayable reparations. This is a crisp retelling of a people who did not have, and indeed were prevented from having the economic infrastructure to participate in a functional modern economy.
By the time Feldman is done telling you the story of Germany's incomprehensible inflation, you'll feel an intimacy with this subject. This book is indispensable for understanding the origins of the seething anger, frustration and hostility that the Nazi's were able to so successfully tap into and manipulate.
Finally, I should note that this book is itself something of an ordeal to read; it took me well over two years to read this 4 pound monster. But I have to say I enjoyed every hour I spent with it...

Essential for economic historians 28. Dezember 2012
Von Chris Mathews - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Astonishing that there is only one other review of this book. This is a must-read book. All English-speaking German historians (at least self-professed) should really examine themselves (as the Chinese would say) and read this book!

This is an unparalleled look at German economic activity between the wars. The only other work I find comparable is Milton & Rose Friedman's epic work:

While extremely difficult to read, the book examines every possible aspect of the German economic machine.

A rare illustration on page 858 has the following caption: "In the old Germany, one read 'the book' around a table; in the new postwar and post-inflation Germany, the profiteer fox-trots, surrounded by books that serve only decorative purposes."

The last sentence from this book: "Surely, the German inflation is one important reason why so many Germans defaulted not only on democracy but also on civilization itself."
This is a great book, a fantastic learning experience and yes I will be glad when I finish it 22. Januar 2015

Only half way through but this is just magnificent. I think another reviewer suggested it took years to finish and I hope to avoid that fate...
To acknowledge faults, it requires willingness to get on and ride despite innumerable details that just have to be set aside (the dependence on abbreviations of a gazillion German society, corporate, government entities would drive a sane person off the edge if he/she insisted on untangling it).
But getting into the flow and then appreciating his remarkable summary statements is a great experience. So much to be learned, the world between the wars and the advent of the depression and WWII will never seem the same. The writing is not thick and the incident is sufficient to make for some narrative flow.
This is a great book. But I don't know if I'd ever have had the courage to do it in paperback, the Kindle was the key.
