The economic crisis of 1929 had a particular impact on the economic and political thought of most countries. The relevant international literature is abundant. However, it is limited to the large and economically powerful countries. What exactly happened in the smaller economies remains a question open to investigation. The publication of the Alpha Bank Historical Archives entitled “The Great Depression in Europe: Economic Thought and Policy in a National Context”, which was edited by M. Psalidopoulos, Professor at the University of Athens and holder of the Constantine G. Karamanlis Chair at the Fletcher School, Tufts University, fills this gap. The papers included in this Volume were presented, in a first draft, at a conference organised by the Alpha Bank Historical Archives, which took place in Corfu and was attended by distinguished academics representing the various national country experiences.
