Econ 312 Syllabus Wallis Spring 2011 Tydings 3135 M 1:00, W 3:30 This is a class in American Economic History. This semester we will focus on the period from the Civil War through World War II: 1860 to 1950. The texts for the course are: American Economic History , 8th edition, Jonathan Hughes and Louis P. Cain. A New Economic View of American History , Jeremy Atack and Peter Passell, 2nd edition. In addition to the text there will be readings from other books and professional journal articles. The readings are available on the course website: http://econweb.umd.edu/~wallis/Teaching.htm ECON 311/312 I’ll distribute the ID and password in class.
