First and only systematic comparative analysis of the two great economic and financial crises of the last 100 years

Provides an integrated account of experience in the US and Europe, which together constituted the epicenter of the recent crisis and were similarly at the center of the Great Depression

Economic analysis is leavened by anecdote and personalities, with key figures in both crises introduced and humanized

Shows how the history of the Great Depression shaped how policy makers perceived and responded to the Global Credit Crisis, but equally how the recent crisis will in turn re-shape how we see the Depression
