In India Unbound, the author goes over India's economic history, right from independence to present day. I am interested in a similar reading for the United States, specifically conditions in the 20th century.

Any decent suggestions which comes close? I found 10 books but any one in particular which stands out and is a must read?

Currently this one stands out to me, other suggestions welcome. The Rise and Fall of American Growth: The U.S. Standard of Living since the Civil War

Found this to have more breadth on the overall US economy: The Rise and Fall of American Growth: The U.S. Standard of Living since the Civil War

The Ascent of Money, This Time it's Different, and Other People's Money. All great reads.

    $\begingroup$ Hi and welcome to Economics.SE. Do you mind expanding a bit your answer? Maybe write about the published year, the author. How do those books cover the history of Economics in the USA (which years are covered, etc.). $\endgroup$ – bilbo_pingouin Sep 12 '16 at 6:14
