BOOK EXCERPT:

With increasing world economic interdependence and a new position as a creditor nation, the American business community became more actively and vocally concerned with foreign policy after World War I than ever before. This book details the response of American businessmen to such foreign policy issues as the tariff, disarmament, allied debts, loans, and the Manchurian crisis. Far from presenting a monolithic front, the business community fragmented into nationalist and internationalist camps, according to this study. Division over each issue varied with the size, type, and geographic region of the various business interests, and despite their formidable economic power, business internationalists are shown to have played a more limited role on certain issues than has been formerly assumed. Unfortunately for the future development of United States diplomacy and world stability, no institutional means for tempering business influence on the formulation of foreign policy, or for coordinating economic and political foreign policies, were developed in the twenties.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The fundamental and explosive changes in the U.S. economy andits business system from 1860 to 1920 continue to fascinate andengage historians, economists, and sociologists. While manydisagreements persist about the motivations of the actors, mostscholars roughly agree on the central shifts in technologies andmarkets that called forth big business. Recent scholarship,however, has revealed important new insights into the changingcultural values and sensibilities of Americans who lived during thetime, on women in business, on the ties between the emergingcorporations and other American institutions, on the nature ofcompetition among giant firms, and on the dawn of modernadvertising and consumerism. This vast accumulation of notable new work on the social conceptand consequences of economic change in that era has prompted GlennPorter to recast numerous portions of The Rise of Big Business, oneof Harlan Davidson’s most successful titles ever, in this,the third edition. Those familiar with this classic text willappreciate the expanded coverage of topics beyond the fray ofregulation and the political dimensions of the emergence ofconcentrated enterprise, namely the influence of the rise of bigbusiness on social history. An entirely new bank of photographs and illustrations rounds outthe latest edition of our enduringly popular title, one perfect forsupplementary reading in a variety of courses including the U.S.history survey, the history of American business, and specializedcourses in social history and the Gilded Age.
