Lichtenstein: A Modern History

£45.00

Product description

541 pages including index. Dark green boards with white title on spine. 1 cm light pink mark on top of block. Dust jacket unclipped. A few scratches to the rear cover and slight creasing to bottom of cover and to the inside rear flap. Pages are crisp, clean and free of any markings. The book is tightly bound.

Lichtenstein is a unique, but little-known success story in modern Europe. excluded from the league of nations in 1920 because it was thought too small, it is now an active member of the United nations, The European economic area, The Council of Europe and other international organisations.

Its history has been dramatic and precarious. Several times it was in danger of vanishing from the map, most recently in 1939. It has no natural resources, beyond a hard-working and entrepreneurial population. Low taxes and liberal regulation and 'small government' have transformed it from an agrarian backwater into one of the most advanced high- technology industrial countries in Europe.

The first edition of Lichtenstein: A modern History, launched in 2003, was hailed as the most comprehensive and factual book on Lichtenstein published for decades. It has been reprinted several times, reflecting the demand for well-researched information about Lichtenstein.

Since the book was first published, world events have radically affected Lichtenstein's global position, and this expanded and completely revised edition now brings Lichtenstein's story up to date. It includes a full account of Lichtenstein's response to the international financial crisis and of the chain of events that led tot the Lichtenstein declaration in 2009 in response to global standards on transparency in fiscal matters.
