“America’s First Great Depression” now in Cornell UP catalog & on Amazon
Cornell University Press’ Spring 2012 catalog is now published, with details about America’s First Great Depression. Professor Richard John of Columbia University, a former president of the Business History Conference, says: “America’s First Great Depression is an intriguing history of American financial policy in the 1830s and 1840s. Alasdair Roberts’s contention that international financial considerations shaped U.S. policymaking is well sustained, the writing is sprightly, and the argument is nicely documented with a wealth of judiciously culled evidence.” Download the catalog information here.
