Productivity and Performance in the Paper Industry: Labour, Capital, and Technology in Britain and America, 1860-1914 (Cambridge Studies in Modern Economic History, Volume 4)
Gary Bryan MageeISBN: 0521892171; 9780521892179;
In a significant new contribution to economic history, Dr. Magee examines an important British industry that, like many others, declined in relative importance during the period prior to 1914. He compares Britain's performance in papermaking with its main international rivals of the time, America and Germany, addressing such central subjects as technological change, entrepreneurship and productivity. The book will be invaluable to scholars of economic history as well as those simply interested in papermaking.
