Unlike prior reviews of the Marshall Plan, this quantity concentrates now not on occasions in Washington, yet on these in France and Italy--the moment and 3rd biggest beneficiaries of the Plan. utilizing united states, French, and Italian assets, the writer analyzes the impression of the Plan on French and Italian fiscal coverage among 1948 and 1950. Taking neither a realist nor revisionist stance, the writer argues that huge American relief to Western Europe was once a perceived political necessity--that American, French, and Italian governments shared with Truman the strategic-ideological target of Communist containment. but, now not the entire philosophy embedded within the Plan can be carried out, and American ideology didn't, for that reason, have a decisive impression in reshaping postwar French or Italian fiscal policies.
The book's creation discusses the targets of the Marshall Plan and the way postwar political situations led France and Italy to distinctive financial restoration paths that will usually conflict with American objectives. the next seven chapters research how American officers sought to steer French and Italian fiscal regulations. Chapters 2, three, and four hide the French case; chapters five, 6, and seven, the Italian. The concluding bankruptcy offers an immediate comparability of the French and Italian studies and indicates implications for present historiographical debates.
