“An interesting sidelight on the transformation of laissez-faire capitalism and the shaping of markets toward more ethical behavior.”
“Academicians Gaudiani and Burnett note that learning just about entrepreneurs such as Rockefeller and Carnegie provides only a partial understanding of the development of the US, which grew as a nation because of female social entrepreneurs like the ones discussed herein, who worked to improve society and the lives of citizens. This book would make excellent reading for courses in US history, women's history, or public health. Exhaustive footnotes, complete bibliography, and a comprehensive index….Highly recommended.”
