Thorstein Veblen is best known for his authorship of qThe Theory of the Leisure Classq and qThe Theory of Business Enterprise, q which made him a celebrated figure in the fields of economics and sociology at the turn of the twentieth century. In this book, Sidney Plotkin and Rick Tilman argue that in addition to his well-known work in these fields Veblen also made important--and until now overlooked--statements about politics. While Veblen's writings seldom mention politics, they are saturated with political ideas: about the relationship among war, executive power, and democracy; about the similarities between modern executive positions and monarchy; about the political influence of corporate power; about the symbolism of politics; and about many other issues. By demonstrating the deep relevance of Veblen's writings to today's political troubles, qThe Political Ideas of Thorstein Veblen qoffers an important reconsideration of a major American thinker.(Original essay published 1908.) a€”. 1978. The Theory of Business Enterprise. With a new Introduction by Douglas Dowd. New Brunswick, N.J.: Transaction Publishers. (Originally published 1904.) a€”. 1979. The Theory of the Leisure Class.
