"History shows that people who save and invest grow and prosper,and the others deteriorate and collapse. As Financial Reckoning Day demonstrates, artificiallylow interest rates and rapid credit creation policies set by AlanGreenspan and the Federal Reserve caused the bubble in U.S. stocksof the late '90s. . . . Now, policies being pursued at the Fed aremaking the bubble worse. They are changing it from a stock marketbubble to a consumption and housing bubble. And when those bubbles burst, it's going to be worse than the stockmarket bubble . . . No one, of course, wants to hear it. They want the quick fix. Theywant to buy the stock and watch it go up twenty-five percentbecause that's what happened last year, and that's what they say onTV." —Jim Rogers, author of the bestseller AdventureCapitalist from the Foreword to Financial Reckoning Day Advanced praise from bestselling authors "An investment book that will not only enlarge your investmenthorizon, but also make you laugh and thoroughly entertain you for afew hours." —Dr. Marc Faber, author of the bestseller Tomorrow'sGold "Financial Reckoning Day is . . . in the category ofscintillating sex or good vision, something to be savored andenjoyed-before it is too late." —James Dale Davidson, author of the bestseller The GreatReckoning and The Sovereign Individual "A powerful and insightful vision . . . each paragraphstimulates a new rush of thoughts that fills in gaping holes in theinvestor's understanding of what has happened to their dreams . . .while prepping them to confront any new confusion that mayarrive." —Martin D.

Whether building a road or fighting a war, leaders from ancient Mesopotamia to the present have relied on financial accounting to track their state's assets and guide its policies. Basic accounting tools such as auditing and double-entry bookkeeping form the basis of modern capitalism and the nation-state. Yet our appreciation for accounting and its formative role throughout history remains minimal at best-and we remain ignorant at our peril. The 2008 financial crisis is only the most recent example of how poor or risky practices can shake, and even bring down, entire societies. In The Reckoning, historian and MacArthur "Genius" Award-winner Jacob Soll presents a sweeping history of accounting, drawing on a wealth of examples from over a millennia of human history to reveal how accounting has shaped kingdoms, empires, and entire civilizations. The Medici family of 15th century Florence used the double-entry method to win the loyalty of their clients, but eventually began to misrepresent their accounts, ultimately contributing to the economic decline of the Florentine state itself. In the 17th and 18th centuries, European rulers shunned honest accounting, understanding that accurate bookkeeping would constrain their spending and throw their legitimacy into question. And in fact, when King Louis XVI's director of finances published the crown's accounts in 1781, his revelations provoked a public outcry that helped to fuel the French Revolution. When transparent accounting finally took hold in the 19th Century, the practice helped England establish a global empire. But both inept and willfully misused accounting persist, as the catastrophic Stock Market Crash of 1929 and the Great Recession of 2008 have made all too clear. A masterwork of economic and political history, and a radically new perspective on the recent past, The Reckoning compels us to see how accounting is an essential instrument of great institutions and nations-and one that, in our increasingly transparent and interconnected world, has never been more vital.

Frederick Douglass (1818-1895) and Herman Melville (1819-1891) addressed in their writings a range of issues that continue to resonate in American culture: the reach and limits of democracy; the nature of freedom; the roles of race, gender, and sexuality; and the place of the United States in the world. Yet they are rarely discussed together, perhaps because of their differences in race and social position. Douglass escaped from slavery and tied his well-received nonfiction writing to political activism, becoming a figure of international prominence. Melville was the grandson of Revolutionary War heroes and addressed urgent issues through fiction and poetry, laboring in increasing obscurity. In eighteen original essays, the contributors to this collection explore the convergences and divergences of these two extraordinary literary lives. Developing new perspectives on literature, biography, race, gender, and politics, this volume ultimately raises questions that help rewrite the color line in nineteenth-century studies.
