Excerpt from book: REVIEWS CHARLES RIST ON GERMANY'S WAR FINANCES Professor Rist's new book is a notable survey of an important subject. True, the time is not ripe for an exhaustive study. Essential German data are not yet available. Intensive studies by competent German economists must precede a complete and perfect appraisal. We are yet too near to the war, too much under the influence of the war's emotions, to attain at all points the truest perspective. But we need, while the experience is still fresh in our memories, competent preliminary studies of war-time policies and theories ? those of belligerents and neutrals alike; the more because so many lessons which it should teach are sorely needed in the painful return to normal conditions.
