Europe in 1929

The 1920s witnessed a brief period of economic prosperity in much of Europe, but it was rapidly followed by a disasterous depression. Many factors contributed to this development, and not least were the economic complications produced by the political fragmentation (often called the "Balkanization") of Europe. Note the rivalries in the Balkans and the continuing European control of North Africa and the Mid-East.
