9780804728195: Cuban Sugar in the Age of Mass Production: Technology and the Economics of the Sugar Central, 1899-1929

This book examines the modernization of the Cuban sugar industry from the end of the Cuban War of Independence throughout the ensuing boom in the sugar industry. An underlying theme of the book is the close connection between the technical and organizational changes in the Cuban sugar industry and the technological changes behind the managerial revolution in industrial countries. The technical changes in the sugar industry, marked by the diffusion of mass production technologies and the adoption in Cuba of modern central factories, were characteristic of most progressive industries of that time. In general, the application of mass production technologies heralded the transition from proprietorships to modern hierarchical and corporate forms of business organization. This book links the development in the Cuban sugar industry to the global movement in business organization and technology that has been referred to as the rise of managerial capitalism.

Review:

'Dye's combination of historical research with economic theory has produced a welcome contribution to Cuban and sugar historiography, as well as a case study of the dynamics of industrial investment.' The Times Literary Supplement
