Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The tariff policies of the 1890-1922 led to the development of tariff rates that launched the United States on a path that led to later trade wars. The Republican Party and Porter McCumber took the lead in promoting these policies, claiming that the tariff would protect new and struggling industries. In many instances, items subjected to high tariffs were not in conflict with industries in the United States. In addition, although the tariff covered agricultural products, it was not sufficient to halt an agricultural decline. This work traces the course of U.S. policy through five tariffs which preceded the Fordney-McCumber tariff of 1922, when the tariff was used for both protection and revenue. McCumber's economic nationalism combined with his internationalism in other areas is detailed in the work.

Book News Annotation:

Pivoting on the legislative career of North Dakota Republican Porter McCumber, chronicles how the Republican leadership encouraged the growth of US industry by imposing stiff import tariffs on manufactured goods through World War I, and how that policy contributed to the Great Depression.
