Originally published in 1987, Dollars and Borders explores the United States’ government’s relation to transnational capital. James P. Hawley traces the attempts of four presidents (John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, and Jimmy Carter) in the 1960s and 1970s to restrict international movements of U.S. capital and analyses the political and economic issues confronted by the government during this period. This title will be of particular interest to students of Politics and Economics.
