*The Battle of Bretton Woods*

This is an excellent book.  The author is Benn Steil and the subtitle is John Maynard Keynes, Harry Dexter White, and the Making of a New World Order.

If you enjoyed Liaquat Ahamed’s Lords of Finance, and his take on the 1920’s, and you are looking for something comparable on postwar economic reconstruction, this is the place to go.

The book also contains some explosive revelations about White’s work as a Soviet spy, very well documented I might add.
