Book Overview
Few periods in history compare to the Great Depression. Stock market crashes, bread lines, bank runs, ad wild currency speculation were worldwide phenomena--all with the storm clouds of war gathering ominously in the background. Here Bernanke has gathered together his essays on why the Great Depression was so devastating and lasted so long. The essays in this volume present a uniquely coherent view of the economic causes and world-wide propagation of the depression.

The nine essays form a remarkably coherent whole. --Barry Eichengreen, University of California, Berkeley, and author of Globalizing Capital: A History of the International Monetary System Collecting these essays together will provide a single source for students to find Bernanke's substantial contributions.... His papers demonstrate conclusively that the international view of the great depression has impressive explanatory power. --Peter Temin, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
