Wall Street: A Cultural History (Steve Fraser)

Regular price €4,00

Tax included.

Steve Fraser's epic book is a passionate, critical history of the most powerful financial district in the world. It can also be read as the story of capitalism in America, and of the great turning points in American history, but it is much more than a narrative of politics and economics.

Review

"'Every so often a breathtakingly brilliant book comes along; Steve Fraser's Wall Street is one such work.' Frank McLynn, Herald 'Compendious and colourful. Fraser has done for Wall Street much of what David Kynaston did for the City of London in his great four-volume history.' Martin Vander Weyer, Daily Telegraph 'It is hard to imagine a more thoughtful, and urgent book than Fraser's picture of a nation willingly seduced by greed.' Eric Homberger, Independent"
