The Great Crash 1929
The classic examination of the 1929 financial collapse, with an introduction by economist James K. Galbraith
Of John Kenneth Galbraith's The Great Crash 1929, the Atlantic Monthly said: "Economic writings are seldom notable for their entertainment value, but this book is. Galbraith's prose has grace and wit, and he distills a good deal of sardonic fun from the whopping errors of the nation's oracles and the wondrous antics of the financial community." Originally published in 1955, Galbraith's book became an instant bestseller, and in the years since its release it has become the unparalleled point of reference for readers looking to understand American financial history.

Excellent recapUser Review - Greg in Cincy - Borders
If you're looking for a well documented recap of the Crash of 1929, this book gives you the details, from the land speculation, to the "everything is ok" mantra from the investment bankers. Sound Familiar? you could cover over the years of 1928 and 1929 and replace with 2007 and 2008. Read full review
