Reviews

"Brilliantly conceived and enlightening at every turn, For Profit is a thrilling history of an institution that has shaped all our lives--for better and for worse."--Lawrence Wright, author of The Plague Year
"In this lively and informative history of the corporation, William Magnuson shows that corporations were born to serve the public interest--only to be used and abused time and again to maximize profits for shareholders and executives. A must-read for any student of the world's most influential form of economic organization."--Adam Winkler, author of We the Corporations
