An account of the efforts of influential businessmen Lemuel Ricketts Boulware and Jasper Crane to roll back the New Deal outlines their campaign to promote an "ideological revolution" that ultimately supported conservative agendas.

Norton Pub
Invisible Hands tells the story of how a small group of American businessmen succeeded in building a political movement. Long before the “culture wars” of the 1960s sparked the Republican backlash against cultural liberalism, these high-powered individuals actively resisted New Deal economics and sought to educate and organize their peers. Kim Phillips-Fein recounts the little-known efforts of men such as W. C. Mullendore, Leonard Read, and Jasper Crane, drawing on meticulous research and narrative gifts to craft a compelling history of the role of big and small business in American politics—and a blueprint for anyone who wants insight into the way that money has been used to create political change.
“A compelling and readable story of resistance to the new economic order.”—Boston Globe
