Notes

First edition, first impression. Following the success of Keynes's first work on the question of German reparations, The Economic Consequences of the Peace, The Sunday Times paid Keynes a large sum for five widely syndicated articles on the same subject, which appeared in August and September 1921. The present work, published in January 1921 in a printing of 10,000 copies, collects and revises these articles; Keynes had originally proposed to his publisher a revision of Economic Consequences, but was persuaded that circumstances necessitated a new work. A Revision of the Treaty therefore includes an analysis of the diplomatic grappling of the previous years, and questions the legality of France's repeated threats to occupy the Ruhr, which they would carry out the following year. Keynes is unsympathetic to all sides, including to the Germans' proposals.
