Summary: Contrary to the idea that the United States was liberal from its inception, Orren argues that both capitalism and constitutionalism proceeded upon a remnant of ancient feudalism. This was the common law of master and servant, embedded in the judiciary, cutting off the fundamental area of labor governance from democratic politics. The fully legislative polity that defines the modern liberal state was brought on through the industrial actions of trade unions in the lat
e nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and was established with the institutions of collective bargaining under the New Deal. The book represents a reinterpertation of American political development and of the role of the labor movement as a creator of liberalism, not a spoiler of socialism.

''I have always insisted that political science had a lot more to say about economic history. My best confirmation comes from Karen Orren. Her forcefully written book brings an entirely new perspective to the place of labor in the United States and goes beyond that to fresh insights on corporate capitalism itself.''
