A classic text, "The Land Boomers" by Michael Cannon delves into the speculative frenzy that gripped Melbourne, Australia, during the late 19th century. The book provides a detailed account of the land boom of the 1880s, a period characterized by rapid economic expansion, rampant land speculation, and the eventual financial collapse that ensued. Cannon meticulously chronicles the key players, schemes, and the socio-economic impact of this era, illustrating how the speculative bubble dramatically reshaped Melbourne's urban landscape and economy. Through rich historical narrative and analysis, Cannon highlights the consequences of unchecked financial speculation and the enduring lessons it offers.
