I don't like books that are simply political diatribes. The Betrayal of American Prosperity is a well researched, fact based, thoughtful analysis of American trade policy. I highly recommend it.
Far from being a left wing radical or a Smoot- Hawley protectionist, Prestowitz was a trade negotiator during the Reagan administration. So he is traversing territory he knows well.
The book leads you on a historical journey of the history of free trade in the U.S. and Great Britain. Prestowitz also covers the history of trade policy in the USA and how policy impacted the rise of the U.S as an economic superpower.
American trade policy is a neglected subject. I think this book will become a classic on the subject.
The narration is well read and enjoyable.
