What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

This clear, well-organized work belongs in any library. Summing up: Highly recommended.' - M Perelman, Choice

'...an outstanding summary statement of more than fifty-five years of American economic history and policy.' - Michael Meeropol, Challenge

'Interesting, thought-provoking reading.' - Louis P Cain, EH-Net'

Rosenberg has produced a valuable volume for anybody who wants an overview of the postwar US economy. It would be useful as a textbook for college-level courses on US history, for people interested in materials for noncurricular political economy education seminars, as well as for the interested general reader.' - Michael Perelman, Review of Radical Political Economics

'...among the best introductory surveys of modern US economic history.' - Iwan Morgan, The Economic History Review
