An Economic History of the United States is an accessible and informative survey designed for undergraduate courses on American economic history. The book spans from 1607 to the modern age and presents a documented history of how the American economy has propelled the nation into a position of world leadership. Noted economic historian Ronald E. Seavoy covers nearly 400 years of economic history, beginning with the commercialization of agriculture in the pre-colonial era, through the development of banks and industrialization in the nineteenth century, up to the globalization of the business economy in the present day.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"With crisp prose and handy headers, An Economic History of the United States not only renders the complex simple to understand, but is a captivating read-no small feat for a survey half the length of the heavy textbook tomes on the market. It will prove an asset to college students and advanced scholars alike."

-Jonathan J. Bean, Professor of History, Southern Illinois

"Nothing like Seavoy's work has been produced for several decades. Anyone interested in how and why the U.S. economy was propelled to world leadership in a short time will find this work of value."

-David O. Whitten, Professor of Economics, Auburn University
