This work updates and expands upon Jesse Markham's Competition in the Rayon Industry, providing a detailed examination of the structure and organization of all large volume man-made fibers industries. Goldenberg assesses such issues as conditions of supply and demand, the structures of subindustries, and structural determinants, as well as exploring the price aspects of behavior and nonprice behavior. Industry performance is also examined, in terms of social benefits, productivity, profits, and workability. This important study provides a practical test of industrial organization theory and performance.
