Twentieth-century Europe was an intense laboratory of capitalist
experimentation. Confronted with economic booms and crises,
technological revolutions, and economic globalization, Western
Europe's governments constantly explored alternative ways of
managing domestic economic systems and international commerce.
Bridging comparative and international political economy,
Creative Reconstructions compellingly expands our
understanding of the historic relationship between varieties of
capitalism and international cooperation.
Orfeo Fioretos' pathbreaking analysis places multilateral
institutions at the center of the study of capitalism. He
highlights the role played by governments' multilateral strategies
in shaping the national trajectories of capitalism in Great
Britain, France, and Germany. Fioretos shows that membership in
international organizations such as the European Union and its
precursors was an integral innovation in the domestic management of
capitalism that came to play a central, if varied, role in shaping
the evolution of modern market economies.
