The Tariff History Of The United States
This book has never been surpassed as pure economic history. This might be the first new presentation of the book to appear in 100 years.
It is not economic history as that phrase has come to be understood in recent years. It is more than a litany of facts and data manipulated with econometrics. This is super-charged, very interesting history of real people, institutions, and policies and their effects. Taussig shows how the tariff policies had an enormous influence on the direction of U.S. industrial development, and the conflicts caused by intervention.
