Historical Reading Material

Does anyone have suggestions for books on American economical history that are relevent to potential economic systems to develope post carbon / crash?  l've been wonding if colonial or 19th century histories would offer some clues regarding what may develope. 

Conversly, any other suggestions for current reading material.  I've been picking up a number of books, but am now finding that many of the books out there spend a great deal of time explaining the authors equivalents of the 3E's.  I get that I don't need to reread the same information.

Richard Maybury books

 I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for ... the set, known as "Uncle Eric" books, is written for teens but as I understand it, is helping adults to understand just exactly what is going on. I think having clarity about what went wrong can help us develop a future system that avoids the same mistakes. His book "Clipper Ship Strategy" apparently is about dealing with what is right now ... i.e. figuring out a way to have income as things go downhill.

I just received my set recently and have not read these ... my info is secondhand, but from reliable sources.
