Favorite Books on U.S. History
Hi All — as we head into the Fourth of July weekend, I wanted to thank everyone here for all of the knowledge and support that they’ve shared with me on this forum over the last few months. As a YN, it makes a big difference to see the hobby’s elder statesman so invested in developing the next generation of collectors and investors.
I also wanted to take this opportunity to ask about your favorite books on U.S. history; bonus points for suggestions that have a economic or monetary element to them. Numismatic suggestions are encouraged as well, but would preferably offer a broader perspective. Here are a few titles that I’ve personally enjoyed: Americana by Srinivasan and Capitalism in America by Alan Greenspan.
Thanks again for all your support, advice and encouragement over the last few months. And Happy Fourth!
And finally, please know that I don’t intend to make this a politically charged thread; only seeking knowledge and perspective from those who have seen a thing or two.
