by Charles P. Kindleberger
Publisher: University of California Press 1990
Number of pages: 358

The essays cover a range of historical periods and also include European history and explorations of long-run changes in the American economy. Economists and historians, both the converted and the unconvinced, will want to consult this powerful argument for the importance of historical economics.
