FOGEL, Robert William. The Fourth Great Awakening & the Future of Egalitarianism. Chicago and London: University of Chicago Press, (2000). Octavo, original half black cloth, original dust jacket. $650.
First edition of this “profound piece of intellectual history” (Library Journal), signed on the title page by Nobel laureate R.W. Fogel and dated by him, “3/14/13.”
In 1993 Fogel, along with Douglass Hall, received the Nobel Prize in Economics for developing “‘new economic history,’ or cliometrics, i.e. research that combines economic theory, quantitative methods, hypothesis testing, counterfactual alternatives and traditional techniques of economic history, to explain economic growth and decline” (Nobel press release). In The Fourth Great Awakening Fogel “ambitiously tries to integrate the history of American religion with the history of social reform and the move toward equality” (Publishers Weekly).
