The Interstate Commerce Commission and its relationship with the railroad is the subject of this work, which traces the enormous changes that saw the rail industry go from being strictly regulated for 90 years to being largely deregulated in the late 1970s. Stone concentrates on the post-1976 period, when the ICC's view of regulation changed drastically, and considers the political and economic forces that contributed to its actions. He also charts the ICC's transformation from a powerful independent commission to a smaller, less influential one, and assesses its future ties to the railroad industry.

Victim of government regulation, inept management, individual greed, and self-interest, its downfall presents in microcosm the story of the railroad industry's larger problems in postwar America--and in relief, the story of America's economic failures in the 1960s and 1970s.

This hugely influential work marked a turning point in US history and culture, arguing that the nation’s expansion into the Great West was directly linked to its unique spirit: a rugged individualism forged at the juncture between civilization and wilderness, which – for better or worse – lies at the heart of American identity today. Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves – and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives – and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.

This is a new edition of the radical social history of America from Columbus to the present. This powerful and controversial study turns orthodox American history upside down to portray the social turmoil behind the "march of progress". Known for its lively, clear prose as well as its scholarly research, A People's History is the only volume to tell America's story from the point of view of - and in the words of - America's women, factory workers, African-Americans, Native Americans, the working poor, and immigrant laborers. As historian Howard Zinn shows, many of America's greatest battles - the fights for fair wage, an eight-hour workday, child-labor laws, health and safety standards, universal suffrage, women's rights, racial equality - were carried out at the grassroots level, against bloody resistance. Covering Christopher Columbus's arrival through the Clinton years A People's History of the United States, which was nominated for the American Book Award in 1981, is an insightful analysis of the most important events in US history.
