Europe between 1929 and 1938.
Europe between 1929 and 1938.

The interwar period (also called the interbellum) is understood within Western culture to be the period between the end of the First World War and the beginning of the Second World War in Europe, specifically 11 November 1918 to 1 September 1939. It was marked by turmoil in much of the world, as Europe struggled to recover from the devastation of the First World War. In North America the first half of the interwar period is often seen as one of considerable prosperity (the roaring twenties), but this changed dramatically with the onset of the Great Depression in 1929. In Asia, Japan became an ever more assertive power, especially with regards to China. This period in time has been termed as the 'Twenty Years Crisis' after historian and realist E.H.Carr published a book of the same name. The word interbellum refers to the period between wars. ...

This period was marked by a significant change in the international order, with the balance of power that had dominated pre-World War I Europe. One main institution that was meant to bring stability was the League of Nations; it was created at the end of the First World War with the intention of maintaining world security and peace and encouraging economic growth between memeber countries. This institution was hit by a number of issues that undermined its effectiveness and it s legitimise. The idea behind the creation of the League was a good idea because its primary aims still remain important in today’s society however it was badly administered. Balance of power is a central concept of realist theories of international relations. ...


The new League of Nations found itself increasingly discredited through a series of crises, the most important the invasion of Manchuria by Japan . This event alone is seen as the first step towards the Second World War . The second event that was a crisis to the League was The Abyssinian crisis of 1935/36 in which Italy attacked Abyssinia. The League tried to enforce economic sanctions upon Italy but to no avail. Abyssinia was successfully defeated by Italy. From this incident the league showed its weaknesses, it showed that even though sanctions were imposed upon Italy they were not able to take them further than they could have this is because neither France or Britain wanted to isolate Italy and lose her as their ally, the actual actions of Britain and France in fact pushed Mussolini and Italy further towards Hitler.From this crisis Italy felt great resentment towards the League, it withdrew in 1937 and now looked to Germany as an ally. This incident showed Hitler how weak the League was and encouraged him to take his first action in breaking the terms of the Treaty of Versailles, remilitarising the Rhineland. The League of Nations was an international organization founded as a result of the Paris Peace Conference in 1919–1920. ... This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

The interwar period in the United States, and in the rest of the world, is a most interesting era.
In the interwar period its agricultural base, combined with the continuing shift from agriculture to industry, led to a sharp decline in its share.
A major difficulty in analyzing the interwar agricultural sector lies in separating the effects of the 1920-21 and 1929-33 depressions from those that arose because agriculture was declining relative to the other sectors.
