- Tilton House, Sussex, United Kingdom
- Almost a century ago, the Treaty of Versailles marked a new departure in international relations by instituting the League of Nations as the first intergovernmental body explicitly dedicated to peace and stability. At the same time, the Treaty has remained one of the most controversial intergovernmental agreements in history. Keynes, as the principal representative of the British Treasury at the negotiations, famously resigned from the delegation, retiring to Cambridge to write arguably the most eloquent contemporary critique of the Treaty.The Economic Consequences of the Peace became a best-seller virtually overnight and remains a lynch pin in the secondary literature on the significance of Versailles in the build up to the Second World War. Equally, Keynes's Consequences have remained a powerful testament to his idiosyncratic prose and its influence.Seminar contributions are welcome from any perspective shedding light on The Economic Consequences of the Peace and its reception and impact, both from a historical and methodological perspective.[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
