'A bold and creative analysis of the role of political institutions and political culture in shaping distinctive national patterns of government intervention and industrial development. This book represents an important contribution to our understanding of comparative business-government relations.' David Vogel, University of California, Berkeley
'... an excellent example of cultural analysis applied to economic policy, which challenges those who emphasise power and economic rationality as sources of national economic behaviour. Documenting the fact that railroad development policies varies sharply in France, Germany and the United States, he related these differences to national cultural characteristics. This book will be widely read and discussed.' Seymour Martin Lipset, George Mason University
