1939: Lost World of Fair by Gelernter is still one of my favorite books.
(2) John Steele Gordon also reviews A Grand Complication by Stacy Perman this weekend in the Wall Street Journal. His article is also behind the paywall (so maybe that coffee needs a croissant).
Gordon wrote Empire of Wealth: The Epic History of American Economic Power which is available on the Limestone Roof bookshelf.
