Oh, heaven help us! More revisionism [normally I wouldn't comment on this book, but it was in the queue], more reframing of history to fit the author's indoctrinated misperceptions. Try reading, for real intellectual honesty: The Invention of Capitalism, by Michael Perelman, Gangs of America, by Ted Nace, Private Equity at Work, by Professors Appelbaum and Batt, and Web of Debt, by Ellen Brown. [This book by Appleby reminds me of being taught that David Sarnoff invented television, when he stole it from Philo Farnsworth [along with stealing FM radio from Edwin Armstrong, et cetera].
