Thomas K. McCraw is Straus Professor of Business History Emeritus at the Harvard Business School. His book Prophets of Regulation was awarded the 1985 Pulitzer Prize in history.Review:
A novel, stimulating approach...McGraw's effort to clarify the nature of regulation by carefully integrating biography, history of ideas and regulatory strategy pays handsome dividends...Each of these 'prophets' wrote extensively, even compulsively, about the theory and practice of regulation. McGraw skillfully melds their words and actions into a series of revealing intellectual portraits. (Washington Post Book World)
McGraw explains sophisticated economic theory in accessible terms, and he has a historian's knack for isolating such basic American traits as a mistrust of big business and for showing how regulators manipulated these traits to implement their policies. (New York Times Book Review)
