This book represents a pioneering effort to integrate the study of government regulation of business with that of comparative politics. It uses the concept of regulatory policy styles to describe and explain why Great Britain and the United States have adopted such divergent approaches to controlling the externalities associated with industrial growth and places the evolution of government-business relations in both societies in historical perspective.
