This is the first full-length, analytical study of the sterling area from an American viewpoint. The author, a former Treasury official, has travelled to many parts of the sterling area in preparing the book. While he necessarily deals with some of the financial intricacies of this unique monetary system, major emphasis is on the broader economic and political relations and interests.
