Firms, Networks and Business Values: The British and American Cotton Industries since 1750. By Mary B. Rose. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2000. Pp. xii, 352. $64.95.



The point of departure of this book is the assertion that recent scholarship has treated the British cotton-textile industry unfairly because of the strong tendency to situate the industry in the U.S. blueprint of development. The result, Mary Rose believes, has led to some misunderstanding of the rise and decline of the British industry. Rose reverses the standard approach and views the development of U.S. industry through British lenses.
