The Concise Encyclopedia of the Great Recession 2007-2012 brings to the present the necessary information for understanding the first major recession of the 21st century and one of the deepest since the Great Depression itself. Its description of recession-related actors and events since its start provides an in-depth understanding of this major rupture in modern economy, forever changing, some have argued, not only the distribution of income in the United States but the balance of economic power across the globe.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This volume presents a compelling overview of these trying economic times and is highly recommended for public libraries as well as community college and academic libraries. Some may wish to add it to their personal libraries as a ready reference for this crisis in our nation's history. * American Reference Books Annual *
This edition adds information from 2010 to 2012 (such as the Arab Spring and the Occupy Wall Street movement) and covers events, regulations, banks, corporations, industries, key people, government programs, and financial instruments. Most entries range from a few lines to a paragraph, with some complex topics getting several pages. The scope is international and nonbiased. A solid choice for most economics collections; libraries owning the first edition will want to replace. * Booklist *
This second edition (1st ed., CH, Jan'11, 48-2457) updates the earlier volume by Rosenberg (emer., Rutgers), which covered 2007-10, with some 300 pages of new information on the reasoning, motives, hidden agendas, and power plays of those responsible for the great recession. The encyclopedic analysis of the period from 2007 to 2012 is based on reliable reporting from many government sources. Content includes entries on key individuals, companies, government, finance, and institutions. Major entries have been reviewed by specialists. Some of the entries in this new volume include extensive summaries, e.g., those for ARRA, the American Jobs Act, and TARP. For details on such items as Asset-Backed Securities, which has a brief definition, readers must consult See also references. Entries by number or abbreviation are posted in alphabetical order. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-level undergraduates; general readers. * CHOICE *
In outlining the events and activities of the years of the Great Recession, Dr Rosenberg is able to give a great deal of information for the educated layperson. * "American Reference Books Annual" *
