What People Are Saying

Wolf Heydebrand
This book tackles a complex set of historical, economic, political, and sociological issues with great energy and enthusiasm. The two things I like best are the author's attention to issues of law, legislation, and the legal form of corporations, and his explicit awareness and treatment of the historical differences between nineteenth-century dynamics of economic-corporate development and the contemporary phase of economic globalization.
—(Wolf Heydebrand, coauthor of Rationalizing Justice: The Political Economy of Federal District Courts)
David Bills
This volume takes on large and important questions. Well-written and compelling, this is good sociology. I think it has the potential to be a very important book; it's a fine piece of scholarship. .
—(David Bills, editor of The New Modern Times: Factors Reshaping the World of Work)
