'It should already be on the shelves of any reader of this journal ... reviewing this book is somewhat like reviewing the Bible. This History is also a Very Good Book ... This volume and its companions should find shelf space in the personal libraries of all serious professional historians of the United States, not just of those with an interest in the institutions of a dynamic market economy and a capitalist republic ... this volume is enormously impressive.' Enterprise and Society ' ... an essential reference text for libraries and a valuable starting point for business historians interested in the US, comparative studies or aspects of business-government relations. All elements in the boo are impressive and valuable.' Business History 'These books definitely should be on the shelf, or easily available in the library, of every professional economic historian ... they provide a rich treasure of information, analysis, and insight. The publisher, editors, and authors all are to be congratulated for producing this exemplar work of economic history.' Besprechungen
