A senior editor at The Atlantic Monthly, Beatty tells how, having redeemed democracy during the Civil War, America betrayed it during the Gilded Age. That time, he says, saw the birth of the plutocracy and inequality that rules the country a century later. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)
Beatty, a senior editor of The Atlantic Monthly, has gathered a wide array of documents--including sections of books, articles, first-hand accounts, and letters--which he glues together with his own commentary to create a history of the American corporation, from its beginnings in the 17th century to today. His thesis is that corporations cast a shadow over the American economy, society, culture, and politics like a colossus. There is no index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
