Explorations in OEEC history by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

19 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fifty years after it was launched, the Marshall Plan remains a major event of post World War II history. But what did it actually do for European reconstruction? To commemorate the opening of its historical archives to the public and their deposit at the European University Institute (EUI), the OECD invited a group of EUI historians to analyse the role played by the Marshall Plan and the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation (OEEC) in the economic recovery of Europe. This book examines the major moments punctuating OEEC history from the original offer of Marshall Aid in 1947 to the decision to create the OECD in 1960. It offers a history of the European economic reconstruction and contributes to discussions on models of co-operation favouring economic development, trade liberalisation and world economic integration
Thank you M. Monnet : essays on the history of European integration by Richard T Griffiths( )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and French and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I have long wished that something like this would be available ... The collection is marked by an outstanding talent for disentangling complex historical processes and to illustrate key issues quite briefly. The author takes great pleasure in debunking myths, [..] and he does so with great skill and remarkably little malice."--Professor Helge Ø. Pharo, University of Oslo, Norway--Page 4 of cover

"John F. Kennedy and Europe offers a collection of essays by both participants in and scholars of United States policy toward Europe from 1961 to 1963. The essays treat such important topics as Kennedy's relationships with European leaders, his administration's Italian and Portuguese policies, the Limited Test-Ban Treaty of 1963, and the balance-of-payments crisis with Europe."--Jacket
The Economy and politics of the Netherlands since 1945 by Richard T Griffiths( Book )

12 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is relatively little information on The Netherlands written in the English language which is easily accessible to social science students and even less which is systematically assembled between the covers of a single book. This is unfortunate not only because The Netherlands is an important part of Western Europe but because the experience of The Netherlands in the way in which it has attempted to resolve the economic and political problems confronting it may help to shed valuable light on similar issues facing other European countries. The contributions for this volume were chosen with these considerations in mind. On the one hand the selection of topics was intended to provide an overall impression of the political and economic development of The Netherlands since the Second World War. Thus separate chapters are devoted to an examination of economic develop­ ment; counter-inflation, energy, regional and planning policies; pressure groups, electoral performance, cabinet formation and colonial and Euro­ pean policies. On the other hand, these areas for investigation were chosen to invite specific contrast with the experience of other European nations or to illustrate certain problems of political or economic theory. It is my pleasure to thank, first of all, the contributors themselves for the conscientious way in which they prepared their drafts which made my task as editor so much easier. Secondly, it will be apparent to even the most casual observer that I have contributed two chapters

Industrial retardation in the Netherlands, 1830-1850 by Richard T Griffiths( Book )

14 editions published between 1976 and 1979 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much modern (Le. post-17S0) economic history is concerned with success in that a vast body of literature focuses its attention upon the experience of industrialisation and economic growth or upon relative differences in performance once the growth process is underway. The explanations advanced frequently hinge on those supply and demand factors, perceptible during the growth period itself, which may have helped or hindered economic progress. The problem which arises with this approach is whether those forces attributed with having pulled a country forward were the same as those which, in their absence, had held it back. For example, the growth of'inter national demand may be seen as a major stimulus in the economic development of a particular country, but its effectiveness as a stimu lant may have been contingent upon the prior removal of quite diffe rent obstacles to growth. In these circumstances it would be quite wrong to attribute lack of earlier development to the absence of international demand. Thus the study of a period preceeding discer nible growth in a sector of the economy may tell historians as much about the reasons for subsequent growth as a study of the growth period itself. This was my initial reason for choosing to research into the industrial development in the Netherlands in the first half of the nineteenth century: that it was an interval in economic history usually interpreted as one of stagnation, of missed opportunities and even of economic decline
