A Search for Solvency: Bretton Woods and the International Monetary System, 1941-1971
By Alfred E. Eckes, Jr.
University of Texas Press, 1975, 355 pp.
A very readable history of the creation of the Fund and Bank, using some documentary material not drawn on by others. A good reminder of how the American bankers fought the U.S. government on the Bretton Woods agreements.
