Book Description

This book, first published in 1888 and reprinted in 1974, offers a history of US protective tariffs and their consequences for that country’s international trade, particularly with Great Britain. Its aim was to present to the reader the arguments for and against the opposing principles of protection and free trade, and in this it is successful – the book is a comprehensive analysis of the issue, seen from a time when the debate was perhaps at its most intense.
