Overview

Textiles in Transition contributes a valuable new approach to the study of relocation and wage differentials in the U.S. textile industry during the period 1880-1930. The discussion centers on two major themes: the reasons for the timing of the relocation of American textile production from the Northeast to the South and the simultaneous pattern of wage convergence between the two regions. Kane pays particular attention to the role of technological change in textile production and the striking parallels between the 1880-1930 experience and current industry trends.
