Transatlantic Speculations

Hannah Catherine Davies: Transatlantic Speculations. Globalization and the Panics of 1873


The year 1873 was one of financial crisis. A boom in railway construction had spurred a bull market - but when the boom turned to bust, transatlantic panic quickly became a worldwide economic downturn. In Transatlantic Speculations, Hannah Catherine Davies offers a new lens on the panics of 1873 and nineteenth-century globalization by exploring the ways in which contemporaries experienced a tumultuous period that profoundly challenged notions of economic and moral order.
