In July 1944, as Allied troops fought their way across France, representatives of 44 nations gathered at a New Hampshire hotel to thrash out a global economic system that would prevent another war. Drawing on unpublished letters, diaries and oral testimonies, this absorbing history brings to life the drama and the personalities of the conference that resulted in the Bretton Woods agreement, the demise of which is arguably the source of our present economic woes.
