Format: Paperback
It is primarily a regurgigation of materials
already well known from other sources. The
bibliography is useful but the basic tone is
onward and upward with the greatness of the
corporations. Nary a critical word. Appropriate
for the indoctrination of high school students.

Format: Hardcover
This is another book by an unbridled apologist
for large corporations, who are also his
principal sources of backing. Not worth the
time to read or the money spent.

Format: Paperback
One of those books whose principal purpose is to take up space. Try Deborah Spar for recent books on cartels, or Hexner for the period between the two world wars. A bore, not worth a dime.
