Consisting of Monatliche Nachweise ber den Auswartigen Handel Deutschlands (January 1933-June 1939); Der Aussenhandel Deutschlands Monatliche Nachweise (July 1939); and Sondernachweis der Aussenhandel Deutschlands (August 1939-1944). These publications illustrate a number of major topics, including: the importance of German trade with Eastern Europe; effect of new trade treaties with Southeastern European states concluded in 1934 and 1935; Germanys economic offensive beginning in 1934; growth of a command economy and the requirements of the Rearmament Program; balance of payments problem; and the defeat of the traditionalists with the dismissal of Schacht and Neurath and the appointment of Ribbentrop.
