Description : 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.

Description : Transnational corporations are one of the most important actors in the global economy, occupying a more powerful position than ever before. In their persistent battle to increase profits, they have increasingly turned to the developing world, a world that holds many attractions for them. But what is their impact on the poor? Now in its second edition, Big Business, Poor Peoples finds that these corporations are damaging the lives of millions of poor people in developing countries. Looking at every sector where transnational corporations are involved, this vital book is packed with detail on how the poor are affected. The book exposes how developing countries’ natural resources are being ceded to TNCs and how governments are unwilling or unable to control them. The author argues that TNCs, answerable to no one but their shareholders, have used their money, size and power to influence international negotiations and taken full advantage of the move towards privatization to influence government policies; sovereignty is passing into corporate hands, and the poor are paying the price. But people are fighting back: citizens, workers, and communities are exposing the corporations and looking for alternatives. The first edition of this path-breaking book put the issue of transnational corporations and the poor firmly on the agenda. This second edition contains significant new and updated material and is an essential read for anyone who wants to know more about the effects of corporate power on the poor.
