R.T. Naylor traces the insidious interplay of big business and big government in Canada in the period between Confederation and World War I presenting corruption as the norm rather than an abberation. He tells the often sordid story of the emergence and development of corporate capitalism in Canada during the countrys formative years exposing an epidemic of white-collar crime among the countrys elite financial institutions and locating the origins of the modern corporate-welfare state in tax concessions and subsidies. A controversial study that went against the prevailing views of its time some lauded its publication as an intellectual breakthrough while others condemned it as a political rant.
