'The Day the Bubble Burst'

I began to study economics in the summer of 1979 and in October of that year it was the fiftieth anniversary of the 1929 stock market crash. Papers were full of commemorative stories and this book was published to coincide. My parents bought it for me for Christmas that year ' perhaps an odd choice for a 16 year old.

This is not an academic book on the causes and consequences of the crash. Instead it is a 'social history', written in the style called 'tick-tock', a colourful blow-by-blow account
