Abstract

This essay analyses the “history wars” of the interwar years through the lens of the Carnegie-sponsored Economic and Social History of the World War, both as an antidote to “pre-emptive” historiography and as a crucial intervention that reinforced the salience of comparable social and economic data in international political debates.
