Reprint of the first edition. Published at a time when monopolies and trusts were beginning to attract the attention of reformers, this is more than a neutral overview of the subject. Indeed, Beach's pioneering treatise discusses the relationship of trusts and monopolies to public policy and Christian morality. He argues that public good is not to be sacrificed to private gain, then proceeds to the general principle "that contracts in restraint of trade conflict with public policy and are thus void."
