Notes

Later edition, UK imprint, using the 1939 American sheets published by the Viking Press with a printed overslip covering the original imprint. Originally published shortly after the outbreak of the first World War, Veblen's fourth book aimed to account for why and how Germany had so successfully dominated the modern industrial market, basing his arguments on business enterprise rather than "national genius".
