Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Brandeis published his warning about the centralization of financial power in the US in 1914. Melvin L. Urofsky (constitutional history, Virginia Commonwealth U.-Richmond) decided to edit and publish a new edition, ostensibly to be used in college courses about Progressive-era history and reform. But he also suggests that, though the numbers and (some of) the names have changed, and though the national scene has become global, the patterns of ownership and behavior Brandeis described and the political and social consequences he foresaw are chillingly familiar today.
