Economically speaking, sanctions clearly showed to be among the causes of a devastated economy, although it is difficult to separate their specific effects from concomitant factors present in the economic development of that country during same years - economic mismanagement, warfare, etc. - and precisely locate them within the continuous adjustments operated to sanctions.   It chronicles and examines cases of economic sanctions imposed since World War I.
