Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
``With vivid narrative and anecdotal profiles of such diverse characters as Herbert Hoover, Al Capone, Joseph P. Kennedy, the Marx Brothers, F. Scott Fitzgerald and J. P. Morgan, Klingaman shows that the same `mob psychology' that `had borne the bull market to irrational heights' eventually dragged stock prices far below inherent value,'' said PW. (Aug.)
Library Journal
Having anatomized the tumultuous years of 1919 ( LJ 8/87) and 1941 ( LJ 10/1/88), Klingaman now turns his attention, and his ability to make history fascinating, to 1929, the year of the stock market crash that led to the Great Depression. The author repeats his technique of surveying all aspects of the history of the year--social, political, financial--on a worldwide basis, but with the focus in this case on the United States. He works his way through the year, telling the tales of major figures, from Hoover to Baruch, and minor, such as small investor Edgar D. Brown. Gordon Thomas and Max M. Witts's The Day the Bubble Burst ( LJ 11/1/79) covered similar ground, but Klingaman's book was written in light of the 1987 crash, and the circumstances it relates speak directly to the question, ``Could it happen again?'' Highly recommended.-- Pat Ensor, Indiana State Univ. Lib., Terre Haute
Booknews
The chronicle of a year, based primarily on first-person reports gleaned from newspapers, periodicals, and books, and covering such areas of social life as economics, music, sports, literature, and politics. The front-page events are all there, along with the headliners: the Rockefellers and Duponts, the Marx Brothers, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Al Smith, Al Capone, Stalin, and Gandhi. Strictly a popular account. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    An excellent book. Explains the market crash in an interesting

    An excellent book. Explains the market crash in an interesting format and shows the wide spread influence of multiple events leading up to the crash. Recommend for anyone who likes history. Until the nook version happens, I guard my hard cover copy very carefully. Have read more than once.

    klingaman gives life to 1929

    Klingaman animates the year of the Great Crash with vigour and clarity. The greatest economic tragedy thus far in U.S. history is formed as a back drop to a lively stage that includes Groucho Marx, Al Capone, 'Silent' Cal and others.
