A New Book by David Felix Analyzes the Power and Political Economy of America
Transaction Publishers announces a new title which analyzes how the politics and economy of the late 19th century lead to the superpower of America.
“Based on a lifetime of research, this book synthesizes in a lively manner an enormous amount of material. Drawing on his two previous studies of Keynes, Felix displays a penetrating knowledge of economics as well as history. Throughout, he is never reluctant to challenge accepted views, including those on the Vietnamese war. America Rising should prove to be especially useful to undergraduates.”
David Felix is professor emeritus of history in the City University of New York. His research interests include the history of ideas, economic history, and biography. He is the author of Biography of an Idea: John Maynard Keynes and the General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, Keynes: A Critical Life, Marx as Politician, and other works.
