This is a really good book to read when studying more about the Industrial Systems of AMERICA and it really is well developed from the historical view to the modern and current view of IR and explanation is very clear and I must say this could be a really useful tool for COMPARATIVE STUDIES about America to other countries in concern with its changing trends of IR.
