"This book is an attempt to tell the story of the immense financial and corporate expansion which took place in the United States between the depression of the eighteen-nineties and the crisis of the nineteen-thirties; to show how profoundly it altered the circumstances and quality of American life, why and how it ended in collapse, and what the collapse meant to all of us."

Red loth with titling stamped in gilt. 483pp. Square tight binding. Clean interior. Mild sunning to spine with gilt somewhat faded.

A handsome addition to any modern day finance or economics collection.
