Author visit - "A Nation of Deadbeats: An Uncommon History of American Financial Disasters"

Monday, Oct 22, 2012 7:30p

The story of America is a story of dreamers, defaulters and dramatic financial panics that defined the nation, created its political parties and forced tens of thousands to escape their creditors to new settlements in Texas, Florida and California. William and Mary history professor Scott Reynolds Nelson’s new book, “A Nation of Deadbeats: An Uncommon History of American Financial Disasters” (Knopf, 2012), profiles these upheavals and the bankruptcies and panics that followed them.
