THE INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND, 1945–1965

Twenty Years of International Monetary Cooperation

Vol. I. Chronicle

Vol. II. Analysis

Vol. III. Documents

This history of the first twenty years of the International Monetary Fund, written by past and present members of its staff, attempts to recount objectively what were its origins and what have been its plans and activities.

Volume I contains a chronological account of the evolution of the Fund from the original plans formulated in 1941 to the end of 1965, with a supplementary chapter summarizing subsequent events. Volume II analyzes the Fund’s policies in three major fields and reviews its constitutional development. Volume III reproduces the major documents referred to in the other two volumes, including some not hitherto published.

The three volumes are being made available to the public in the hope that they will enable those interested to understand more of the nature of the Fund’s work, of its problems, and of the techniques which it has devised.
