One of the largest twentieth century summit meetings, the Genoa Conference of 1922, was also a notable failure, due to the gulf between the Allies and Germany, between the West and Soviet Russia, and among the World War I victors and their small allies. This book, a unique international collaboration, presents various perspectives on the Genoa Conference: its leadership, goals, and outcome. The authors present new findings on such questions as the sensational Rapallo Treaty between Germany and Russia; the strategy of the small neutral powers; and the policy of the United States toward European debts. Readers will find contrasting as well as complementary views in this volume.

"...this is well researched and, in view of today's Russian problems, also a timely publication, a tribute to a historiography, which, in the editor's words, stresses human decision making as a crucial factor in our past." German Studies Review "...the articles offer interesting insights into details of how often-neglected states responded to the problems of the early 1920s." The Journal of American History "...all specialists on interwar history will be grateful (once again) to Carole Fink and her colleagues." Stephen White, Slavic Review "Overall, they reflect the praiseworthy trend of the latest scholarship in this area which has concentrated on the interplay of business and politics. The oil question, for example, is given a high profile...this volume is an unexpectedly rich research guide to international affairs in the early 1920s." Alan Cassels, The International History Review
