Describing and analyzing the origins and development of one of the great modern industries—the highly technical and competitive electrical manufacturing industry—the author tells the story of the industry’s scientific and economic innovations and of the men who were responsible for them. Throughout his analysis Harold Passer relates the evolution of the industry to the expanding economy and technological advance of the country.
Economists, economic and business historians, persons concerned with electrical industries, and those connected with public control of business will want to read this volume.
