Some Extraordinary Popular Delusions

£4.99

Describing bizarrely popular Victorian street slang, the madness of crowds, stock market mania (from the South Sea Bubble to Tulip Fever), popular fashions, fads, crazes, schemes and scams, this brilliantly entertaining and ever more relevant study of human folly shows that we are always susceptible to hysteria and bamboozlement.  Part of the Penguin Great Ideas series.
