The du Ponts, one of the most powerful families in American industry, actively fought policies that gave government more power over the economy. By focusing on one family's contribution to the economic and political debate between the world wars, Burk casts light on the changing fortunes of business and government in twentieth-century America.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is the best book in three decades on two of the most important questions in twentieth century American history--how did Conservatism take its particular shape and what role has Big Business really played in public affairs. Robert Burk illuminates these questions and others in an incisive book that is a joy to read.--John Milton Cooper, Jr.
Plumbing the actions and ideas of the du Ponts and their allies, Burk treats a topic of substantial significance in the political, economic, and even social history of the United States. He does it very well, not only in providing a great deal of new and important information about the 1920s and 1930s but also in analyzing these data in light of other ongoing developments in America.--Donald McCoy
