Editorial Reviews

Review

"There is much in this book to like. It is carefully argued. The theory is nuanced. The author has clearly thought deeply about the issues addressed for some time. The book is very interdisciplinary, weaving together elements of economics, business history, legal history, cultural history, and more. The book is easily accessible - Richard Adelstein provides hypothetical illustrations throughout his theoretical arguments - and yet should be of interest to any scholar interested in not just history but the role that corporations play in today's world." - Rick Szostak, University of Alberta

Format: Hardcover
Prof. Adelstein provides in this book a very comprehensive and profound description of the rise of the giant corporations in the US, which is now considered as the spirit of America, ironically. He argues that the rise of corporations in America signals the relative decline of the "smallness" inherited from the constitution, accompanied by the unprecedented rise of the imagine of the state - the federal government. He is an undoubtedly wise and knowledgeable professor.
