The Great Depression lasted a dozen years in the United States, and was only replaced by World War II. The Great Recession of 2008 ended a lot sooner. Didn't it?
Historian Adam Tooze takes a long, hard look at the more recent financial crisis and its causes, and even questions whether it's fully over.
He also traces a number of world events--the rise of China, Brexit, and the election of Donald Trump--to the recession and its aftermath. Tooze's book is Crashed: How a Decade of Financial Crises Changed the World.
