"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
A well-written, interesting, and one-sided review of how IBM has become one of the world's most successful companies. According to DeLamartera U.S. Department of Justice economist who worked on the government antitrust case against IBMgood management, good products, and the ability to meet consumer needs have had little to do with this success. Rather, he attributes it to IBM's "use and abuse of power." He traces a pattern of "unfair" business practices extending back to IBM founder Thomas J. Watson. DeLamarter asserts that IBM seeks to capture a dominant position in the worldwide communications industry; to protect us from the evils that would result, he suggests that IBM be split "into several equal-sized, vertically integrated companies, which would be forced to compete vigorously with each other." Despite the book's lack of objectivity, it would be a worthwhile addition to general business collections. J. Holton Wilson, Sch. of Business, Cen tral Michigan Univ., Mt. Pleasant
