Greenback : the almighty dollar and the invention of America by Jason Goodwin( Book )
9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and German and held by 1,298 libraries worldwide
Money has always been at the heart of the American experience. Paper money, invented in Boston in 1698, was a classic of American ingenuity-and American disregard for authority and tradition. Jason Goodwin has written a biography of the dollar, giving us the story of its astonishing career through the wilds of American history. Greenback looks at the dollar over the years as a form of art, a kind of advertising, a reflection of American attitudes, and a builder of empires. The author shows us how the dollar rolled out the frontier and peopled the Plains, how it erected the great cities, and how it expressed the urges of democracy and opportunity. And, above all, Goodwin introduces us to the people who championed--or ambushed--the dollar over the years: presidents, artists, pioneers, and frontiersmen bankers, shady and upright safecrackers, crooks, and dreamers of every stripe. It's a vast and colorful cast of characters who all agreed on one thing: getting the money right was the key to unlocking liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Greenback delves into folklore and the development of printing, investigates wildcats and counterfeiters, explains why a buck is a buck and how Dixie got its name. Greenback brings together an array of quirky detail and surprising--often hilarious--anecdote to tell the story of America through its best-beloved product

Otis : giving rise to the modern city by Jason Goodwin( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 414 libraries worldwide
"Without it there would be no such thing as a city skyline, or even a city as we know it. Yet Elisha Graves Otis invented the safe elevator almost by accident. He wanted simply to build a machine that would hoist a bedding factory's equipment safely. He built it, all right - and in doing so made possible the construction of the skyscraper and laid the technical foundation for dynamic urban centers around the world." "In Otis: Giving Rise to the Modern City, Jason Goodwin recounts the story of the product and the business that Elisha Otis created. It is a peculiarly American tale of continuous growth and reinvention that continues even today at an ever-faster pace. Founded in 1853 in a ramshackle foundry on the Hudson River in Yonkers, New York, the company survived wars and depressions, bested competitors, and never took its eye off technological innovation. It transformed itself from a gritty manufacturer into an inventive engineering power and, ultimately, a sophisticated global enterprise."--BOOK JACKET
