The Bottlenecks of Business
Dedicated to the men of the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice, this powerful book was written by Thurman W. Arnold in 1940, when he was Assistant Attorney General of the United States. Under his astute and vigorous leadership, the Division prosecuted 230 companies for monopoly practices in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act. Mr. Arnold saw the Act as an instrument to clear the restraint of trade. His anti-trust purpose, he said at the time, was not to destroy the big corporations but to keep them within bounds. The book provides an enlightening analysis of some of the principal cases of the time.
