"Sprightly...Morris is at his best when writing about economic matters, alerting readers to the latest, most authoritative thinking about the causes and realities of the Great Depression."--Publishers Weekly
"A Rabble of Dead Money is a deft synthesis, blending colorful accounts of the past with the scholarly literature of the present. It may not be the last word on the Great Depression, but it is hard to imagine a more accessible and entertaining introduction to the subject."--New York Times Book Review
"A Rabble of Dead Money is a lucid guide through the political and ideological thickets of the Great Depression, beautifully written and full of original insights."--Charles H. Ferguson, director, Academy Award winner for Inside Job
"A great and informative read about a singularly important era in world history."--Wall Street Journal
"As entertaining as it is scholarly, this fresh look at the causes and consequences of the Great Depression by one of the world's leading economic historians imparts timely lessons in the age of the Great Recession. It is a book I will reread for years, I'm sure."--Michael Lind
, author of Land of Promise: An Economic History of the United States
"Both neophytes and experts will find something provocative and rewarding in this unfailingly interesting treatment."--Kirkus Reviews
"Charles Morris wrote a superb book on the Great Financial Crisis of 2007-8 and now, armed with those insights, he returns and takes us back in time to illuminate the causes of the Great Depression. Looking at the present armed with the lessons of the past, and looking at the distant past armed with the insights of recent history, Morris makes a timeless contribution to our understanding of how, in each crisis, the fallibility of leaders is revealed when uncertainty overwhelms the yearning for order, and how the blind spots revealed are the heart of the tragic flaws of each tale."--Robert Johnson
, President, Institute for New Economic Thinking
"Morris has masterfully combined the work of historians along with the results of the latest research in economics and economic history. His narrative offers original perspectives on many important issues."--Alexander J. Field, author of A Great Leap Forward: 1930s Depression and US Economic Growth
