Hard covered book titled DEVIL TAKE THE HINDMOST A History of Financial Speculation By Edward Chancellor, First Edition, 1999, 386 pages. ISBN 0374138583
This is an original and challenging history of stock market speculation from the seventeenth century to the present day. Through vivid accounts of the speculative activities of investors ranging from Daniel Defoe and Benjamin Disraeli to Ivan Boesky and Hillary Rodham Clinton, Edward Chancellor shows that speculation is not driven solely by the desire to make money - by fear and greed - but springs from a wider range of human compulsions and aspirations.
