"The Course of Industrial Decline not only throws new light on the interaction fo labor, business, and technology but also examines a topic of increasing timeliness. As one of many American companies that succumbed to obsolete equipment, poor management, and changing markets, the Boott Cotton Mills experienced problems that have become all too familiar as America's industrial base continues to decline."
