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.

Jacket: Memory Speaks: On Losing and Reclaiming Language and Self, by Julie Sedivy, from Harvard University Press

Lost in Translation: Reclaiming Lost Language

In Memory Speaks: On Losing and Reclaiming Language and Self, Julie Sedivy sets out to understand the science of language loss and the potential for renewal. Sedivy takes on the psychological and social world of multilingualism, exploring the human brain’s capacity to learn—and forget—languages at various stages of life. She argues that the struggle to remain connected to an ancestral language and culture is a site of common ground: people from all backgrounds can recognize the crucial role of language in forming a sense of self.
