About the Author

Ronald E. Seavoy is Professor Emeritus of History at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. He is the author of The Origins and Growth of the Global Economy, Subsistence and Economic Development, The American Peasantry, Famine in Peasant Societies, Famine in East Africa, and The Origins of the American Business Corporation, 1784-1855.


"With crisp prose and handy headers, An Economic History of the United States not only renders the complex simple to understand, but is a captivating read-no small feat for a survey half the length of the heavy textbook tomes on the market. It will prove an asset to college students and advanced scholars alike."

-Jonathan J. Bean, Professor of History, Southern Illinois

"Nothing like Seavoy's work has been produced for several decades. Anyone interested in how and why the U.S. economy was propelled to world leadership in a short time will find this work of value."

-David O. Whitten, Professor of Economics, Auburn University
