“An extraordinary book that explores the deep roots of the American democracy, identifying the political, economic and social transformations through an acute and profound analysis of the powers that structure society. A book needed to understand the current situation not only of the United States, but of the entire Western world.”
― Patrizio Bianchi, University of Ferrara, Italy and Regional Minister of the Emilia-Romagna Government
“This book offers a subtle, textured, clear and compelling account of the US industrial policy and strategy, drawing upon a grand historical analysis and a rich and detailed study of the current neoliberal era. Tassinari examines the evolution of the US policies and institutions both in the short term and the long-term, in the light of national as well as global concerns and modes of governance. An invaluable contribution.”
