In this book Peritz analyses how free competition has signified both freedom from oppressive government and freedom from private economic power. Peritz shows how these two complex yet distinct and sometimes contradictory images have influenced government policy and continue to inspire public debate over political economy in America.

"The book is bold and provocative....a truly daunting enterprise that few others have dared to attempt."Law and History Review

"Everybody who is interested in twentieth century constitutional history or current constitutional law will want to read Competition Policy in America. Peritz offers an extremely fresh perspective of the era."The Law and Politics Book Review

"Comprehensive, scholarly, and well documented....Recommended for legal scholars and graduate-level and professional economists."Choice

"Mr. Peritz has written a fascinating account of America's flirtations, engagements and disappointments with 'competition' and the 'market.' Neither an abstract history of ideas nor a flat account of legal policies. This book combines the best of intellectual history and informed political commentary. Peritz traces the uses and abuses of the rhetoric of competition by politicians, populists and policy mavens across the century. A great read."David Kennedy,
Harvard Law School

"This work is provocative, ambitious and exciting, a sweeping reinterpretation of the rhetorics of law and political economy deployed in a century-long public argument about the practical meaning of freedom. Peritz is most original in the way he brings together for analysis ways of thinking that are too often kept separatethinking about competition and thinking about property, business combinations and labor combinations, free trade in commerce and free trade in
ideas. His work comes just in time to remind us of the radical anti-monopoly traditions of American law and politics, of the "free enterprise" ideology as a critique of private economic power and its abuses as well as of government. If this book has the success it deserves, it should prompt a
fundamental rethinking of conventional wisdoms in antitrust policy, labor law, free speech, and the relations of individuals to business entities and the state."Robert W. Gordon, Yale Law School

"Competition Policy in America is a superb and sophisticated study of the social, political, economic, and intellectual debates that have shaped competition law and policy for the past century. Blending acute legal and economic analysis into the broader currents of late nineteenth- and twentieth-century American history, it illuminates the conflicts that drove the evolution of competition policy and significantly expands our understanding of the whole field
of government economic regulation."Edward A. Purcell, Jr., New York Law School

"It is a splendid critical history of the economic theory known as the Chicago School."American Historical Review

"...provides an inispensable framework for understanding modern political economywhether political campaign finance reform, corporate takeover regulation, or current attitudes toward the New Deal legacy."Bimonthly Review of Law Books

"...this impressive and important book should command the attention of all political historians, legal s...
