This chapter provides an overview of the book and discusses the objectives and arguments set out in the following chapters. It starts by giving a brief history of international capital flows in the period of globalization before the First World War. This book attempts, as this chapter explains, to shed light on today's international financial environment by comparing it with that of 1870–1913. The overarching objective of the book is to enrich the current debate on the design and reform of the international financial system and architecture, by drawing on the evidence from an earlier period of globalization. The chapter finishes by outlining the chapters that follow.
