about

Capitalism in Contention examines the ideas of business leaders on political, economic and ethical issues in modern Britain. Drawing on hitherto unexplored records and wide-ranging interviews, the book sheds new light on the Wilson, Heath and Thatcher periods, the "mixed economy" and the "New Right", the peak representative organizations of business, and business relationships with government. This book will be of value to students and scholars of political economy, economic history and business, and all those interested in the influence of an important actor in modern political life.
