The Summit (The Biggest Battle of the Second World War – fought behind closed doors) is the definitive story of the Bretton Woods conference. I know that sounds a little dry on the face of it, but I promise you it’s not!
‘Brimming with the sort of vivid details that make the past come alive, The Summit is both an impressive work of scholarship and an absolute delight to read’ – Liaquat Ahamed, author of Lords of Finance
‘Who would have thought that an account of an economic summit could be so absorbing? But it was no ordinary summit and Ed Conway’s is an exceptional account’ – Evan Davis, BBC presenter and author of Made in Britain
‘Brilliantly researched, and hugely entertaining, this is an essential book about one of the most important economic events of the twentieth century’ – Keith Lowe, author of Savage Continent
And the other book:
50 Economics Ideas (you really need to know). A user’s guide to economics – everything from supply & demand and interest rates to financial crises and globalisation. A whistlestop tour through all the concepts you’ll need to bluff your way through any economic conversation.
