Editorial Reviews


"Reviewing this book is somewhat like reviewing the Bible. This History is also a Very Good Book, though it can probably anticipate a useful shelf life expressed in a few decades, perhaps a generation, rather than in millennia... This volume...seems encyclopedic and authoritative without being at all daunting... This volume and its companions should find shelf space in the personal libraries of all serious professional historians of the United States... this volume is enormously impressive." Howell John Harris, International Journal of Business History

"This is the third volumcein the Cambridge series on the development of the American economy, and one that serious economic historians will want to have readily available for reference in research and for use in the classroom...VolumeIII of the_ Cambridge Economic History of the United State_ is a superb companion to the earlier two volumes and is an essentail addition to the liberaries of all serious students of the American economy." EH.NET (March2001)

Book Description

Volume III surveys the economic history of the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean during the twentieth century. Its chapters trace the century's major events, notably the Great Depression and the two world wars, as well as its long-term trends, such as changing technology, the rise of the corporate economy, and the development of labor law. The book also discusses agriculture, population, labor markets, and urban and regional structural changes.
