Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time

Has any one read this book? It seems interesting to me to read some history with a perspective on world banking and economics. However, I have read that the author was a bit biased and that he actually preferred the rule of the elite and thought that the world should be ruled by experts. Kind of the philosopher kings ideal.

I just want to know if you have read it and if you would recommend it.

If you would why? I want to know before I drop 40 bucks on it.

Read it for free

It's a free download -- Here. Don't spend $40 on it. No, I haven't read it, and probably won't. Machiavelli's The Prince was tough enough to stomach.

    Thanks so much.

    Great review by the good doctor. I might still have to purchase the text book and see what's in there for myself. If the good doctor read it it must have some stuff worth knowing.

    Yeah ....Don't do that

    I down loaded a pdf from somewhere....I remember it took me quite a while to find it. If you want it send me an e-mail and I will send it to you...save the 40 bucks, you will be glad you did. But do me a favor first....if you are interested in economics and banking read Murray Rothbard's "A history of Banking and Money"....This is a much better book and RP is all about Rothbard.

    The link to the RP youtube video...was not a ringing endorsement of Quigley.....I think if you found that whole speech RP thoughts would have been more complete. I haven't read it all...but what i have did not impress me.
