Review:

`a useful account of the formal structures of the London Stock Exchange' Christopher Armstrong, Business History Review

`No one familiar with Professor Ranald Michie's earlier work ... will be surprised that he has produced a superb volume that will almost certainly be the last institutional history of the first two hundred years of the London Stock Echange ... carefully drawn and thorough ... His book is a must-read for any student of British and world finance, of formal security markets, and of British economic history, and an almost-must-read for anyone with a general interest in economic history.' Lance Davis, Journal of Economic History

`This is a fascinating and well-told story that should have wide appeal. It will be the standard reference for a long time. And it is something of an achievement to produce a book on this subject that can carry the reader along so effortlessly.' Forrest Capie, Business History

`It is very far from a narrow treatment of finance, touching as it does on so many aspects in the economy.' Forrest Capie, Business History

`Is a fascinating and well-told story that should have wide appeal.' Forrest Capie, THES

`This is a solid work of original historical research that gives the reader many interesting insights and raises important questions for practitioners and policy makers as well.' Larry Neal, EH.NET, Aug 2000.

`Written on the basis of an intensive examination of the records of the London Stock Exchange, his work will now be the standard reference on the London Stock Exchange.' Larry Neal, EH.NET, Aug 2000.

`this masterly official history of the London Stock Exchange' E. Moggridge, Choice, Sept. 00.

`With a sure command of the secondary literature plus the records of the Exchange, Michie ... traces the Exchange's 19th-century rise to world dominance ... Very stongly recommended.' E. Moggridge, Choice, Sept. 00.

`Michie has written extensively about stock changes, particularly in England, but also in other countries and different periods. He is an authority ... this is a fascinating and well-told story that should have wide appeal.' Forrest Capie, The Times Higher Education Supplement, 29th Sept. 2000.
