In his "New York Times" bestsellers "Liar's Poker" and" Moneyball," Michael Lewis gave us an unprecedented look at what goes on behind the scenes on Wall Street. Now he takes us back across the centuries to explore the four classics that created and defined not just Wall Street, but the entire economic system we live under today. Brought together with Lewis's illuminating editorial commentary, they form an essential reference for any student of economics--in fact, for anyone who wants to understand the market forces and government policies that have shaped our world, and will continue to shape our future.
