Summary

In simple, elegant language, Hughes and Cain walk students through four centuries of political, social, and economic history, with a focus on laws and institutions and an emphasis on current economic topics that reflects the latest scholarship. Rich in both quantitative techniques and economic theory, American Economic History demonstrates how an understanding of our past can illuminate economic issues that face society today and in the future.
