Historian Mike Dash traces the story of the tulip from its origins on the Turkish steppes to its infamous role as the object of frenzied financial speculation in the original futures market of 17th-century Holland. Detailed and thoroughly entertaining, Tulipomania stands to become the definite account of one of the most bizarre incidents in the history of money, markets, or just plain human affairs.
