    More than fifty years after this book's publication, many readers would more readily grasp the premise if the title said "Cronyism" in place of "Conservatism." Kolko produces statistics to argue that after a period of intense merger activity in the U.S. at the end of the 19th century, which both intellectuals and business leaders believed was an inevitable evolution of capitalism, giants in many sectors of the economy—in finance and insurance, steel and iron, copper, telephone service, oil, ag [...]

    ابرز ما جاء في كتاب إنتصار المحافظين • يرى الكاتب ان عصر (Progressive Era 1900-WWI) كان عصر إنتصار المحافظين.• إنتصار المحافظين لم يكن وليد الصدفة, بل كان نتيجه لقرارات أشخاص ومؤسسات.• عندما واجهت الحكومة الامريكية مشاكل إقتصادية, قامت بإختيار الحلول المقدمة من قبل التجار.• (Progressive ) عب [...]

    Tedious prose and over-detailed. But the main argument is worth the slog. The reform efforts of the progressive-era were made possible through the dedicated action of their primary beneficiaries: the major corporations. Kolko argues (this part I am not convinced of) that the trend at the dawn of the twentieth century was not toward increased consolidation and monopoly but toward increased competition and uncertainty. This led of course to unpredictability, the bane of all major corporations. Des [...]

    This book has a very interesting premise and it somewhat delivers. Kolko is able to find a lot of proof that the progressive legislation was supported by various business interests.The real problem is that Kolko never really tests his hypothesis against the dominant perspective. Sure, Teddy Roosevelt talked up the importance of business, but he also talked up the importance of antitrust. Sure, he had business supports, but he also had relatively radical support. &c.It also winds up feeling l [...]

    Had to read this one for a grad class. Probably (hopefully) will never pick it up again. While I will admit that I didn't read it cover to cover, I don't think that that would've helped me enjoy or understand it any more. What normally would've taken me three or so hours to get through took the better part of a day, and I still don't feel like I fully got what Kolko was trying to say. Maybe I just feel insecure because I disagree with his premise. I don't know.

    A wonderful cure for insomnia. I fell asleep every time I picked this up. Quick summary:Teddy Roosevelt listened to JP Morgan, Rockefeller and so on. Political conservatism started around 1900, not before. JP Morgan & co. were puppet masters. Government and business worked together to destroy small business. Etc.

    A key book for understanding the progressive era and American history in general. It shows how the reforms of that era were intended to maintain the status quo and cement the power of the wasp establishment and big business.

    Sean Chick
    The thesis is simplistic and attractive if you think there is something fundamentally wrong with America. However, the evidence does not support Kolko's interpretations. Business often times opposed reform and these reforms were actually effective in many cases.

    Interesting take on the progressive era, but too clouded by Kolko's 60s world view.

    Full review to come.
