Book Review: Illiberal Reformers

In stock
Frank L. Slesnick. 2017. Book Review: Illiberal Reformers: Illiberal Reformers. Journal of Legal Economics 23(2): pp. 45–54.
In the opening words of the book’s Prologue, ‘‘Illiberal Reformers tells the story of the progressive scholars and activists who led the Progressive Era crusade to dismantle laissez-faire, remaking American economic life with a newly created instrument of reform, the administrative state’’ (Leonard 2016, p. ix). In the opinion of this reviewer, the book is a ‘‘must read’’ for anyone interested in the history of both the Progressive Era covering the late 19th century and early 20th century and, importantly, the influence of the economics profession during this period.
