A broad, historical appraisal of the evolution of work safety and health regulation in the U.S.
From the Publisher:

Workplaces in the United States are safer today than they were a hundred and twenty years ago. In this book, Donald W. Rogers attributes this improvement partly to the development in the Progressive Era of surprisingly strong state-level work safety and health regulatory agencies, a patchwork of commissions and labor departments that advanced safety law from common-law negligence to the modern system of administrative regulation. Rogers examines the Wisconsin Industrial Commission and compares it to arrangements in Ohio, California, New York, Illinois, and Alabama. Connecting this history to the creation of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in 1970, Making Capitalism Safe will revise historical understandings of state regulation, compensation insurance, and labor law politics--issues that remain pressing in our time.
