The Sixth Edition of American Economic History offers a non-technical presentation of U.S. economic history rich in both quantitative techniques and economic theory. While retaining previous editions' hallmark readability and elegant writing style, as well as a focus on laws and institutions, the Sixth Edition brings the study of American economic history into the twenty-first century through updated coverage reflective of the latest scholarship. An expanded emphasis on current economic topics demonstrates the importance of viewing economic events as intricately connected to their historical context.

American Economic History, Seventh Edition, integrates the latest scholarly research and data with the most important lessons from four centuries of economic, political, and social developments in U.S. history. Hughes and Cain take a chronological approach to the course and leave students with a clear understanding of how economic history can inform issues facing our society today.
“This is an excellent introductory textbook that is suitable for students with minimal background in economics. It is especially strong in the coverage of the evolution of the American legal system, from the English heritage through the new ‘quality of life regulations’ of the 1960s.”
— Tom Geraghty, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
“A great feature of this text is that it is fun to read. The story of American economic history is well told here!”
— Simone Wegge, College of Staten Island
