The classic penned by Kindleberger, an economist and financial historian who died in 2003, receives a burnishing from Aliber, who has taught at the U. of Chicago since 1965. Their scholarly analysis describes how mismanagement of money and credit has led to financial explosions over the centuries. The latest edition adds two chapters on the real estate price bubble that occurred in Norway, Sweden and Finland at the end of the 1980s, and the three asset price bubbles that occurred between 1985 and 2000 in Japan and other Asian countries. The dot-com boom and bust also get their due. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
