Synopsis

Synopsis

Are imports really to blame for disappearing American jobs? Tracing the history and politics of economic nationalism from the American Revolution to the present, labor historian Dana Frank demonstrates how "Buy American" campaigns are not a new idea. This entertaining story is full of surprises, including misguided heroes, chilling racism, and more than a few charlatans. Frank contributes a much needed new approach to the old debate between free trade and protectionism. She outlines a strategy that would serve the needs of working Americans instead of the interests of corporations and economic elites.

"Provocative and intelligent. . . . Frank does an excellent job of creating articulate arguments out of a complex blend of history, economics, and current events." --Donna L. Schulman, Library Journal
