The Great Crash 1929.
Boston, Houghton Mifflin Company, 1955
'John Kenneth Galbraith provides a chronicle of that year with an in-depth review of the economic, political, and psychological events that contributed to the collapse of the stock market... The book succeeds in helping the reader understand the causes and the results of the boom and subsequent bust. Galbraith's conclusion sheds light on his hopes for the future. He claims that only misfortune awaits those who believe they can see the future, as 1929 plainly showed' (Zerden).
