About this Item

526 pages, illustrated. "A Dissertation submitted to the faculty of the division of social sciences in candidacy for the degree of doctor of philosophy, Dec. 1949." "Although many of us could probably agree on the general goals for which we should strive in an industrial society, we know very little in detail about the operation of our industrial machine in relation to these goals. This is understandable enough when we realize that modern industry is only about 150 years old and that in this country at least we have been so busily engaged during that period in building business empires that there has been very little time out for reflection." The Great Depression and the Second World War have jolted us out of our complacency. We are now ready to re-examine the values of industrial life in a more critical vein. This book offers a detailed analysis of the economic and technological evolution of electric lighting from the first scientific demonstrations shortly after 1800 to the end of the World War II. Attention is focused upon the various forces lamp industry; and conclusions are drawn concerning the influence of the organization of the industry, the patent system, the international cartel and antitrust enforcement on the development of the industry."
