Thirteen Editions of The Structure of American Industry: An I.O. Perspective

Thirteen Editions of The Structure of American Industry: An I.O. Perspective This article examines the content and longevity of The Structure of American Industry, edited first by Walter Adams and later by James Brock, through its 13 editions. The changing composition of industry case studies and their contributors are chronicled. The application of the Structure–Conduct–Performance paradigm for the study of industries is also assessed. As representatives of the approach and themes of the book, the chapters on Steel and on Public Policy are explored as they evolve through the multiple editions. The impact of the 13 editions is assessed in light of other books that contain industry case studies [L1, L22, L6]. Review of Industrial Organization Springer Journals
