Abstract

West Virginia History, N.S. 4, No. 2, Fall 2010 United States. (Even before the 2009 bailouts, the U.S. government was increasing its debt by $2 billion a day. Since 1990 U.S. public and private debt combined has grown by $45 trillion to a current total of $57 trillion, partly driven by trade deficits in goods totaling $8.2 billion since 1985.) A few irritants do mar this fine book. Its dozen or so typos are all minor, so no harm results. More intrusive are the book's dozen or so pejorative references to "capitalism," evidently rhetorical since Wilson is all for markets and the stronger the better. Finally, and this might confuse some readers, Wilson has a habit of labeling congressional bills as "acts" before they actually get passed and signed into law, and even if they never clear either of those hurdles. But this is an outstanding economic analysis whose timeliness, if it's not serendipitous, must bespeak a prescient author. Paul Salstrom St. Mary-of-the-Woods College Every Home a Fort, Every Man a Warrior: Stories of the Forts and Men in the Upper Ohio Valley during the American Revolutionary War.
