Overview

Yankee Dreamers and Doers: The Story of Connecticut Manufacturing by Ellsworth S. Grant

How did Connecticut Yankees bring their assets of ingenuity and a penchant for hard work to bear to plant the seeds and cultivate the fruits of American industry as we know it today?

A fascinating documentation of their successes and failure, of the introduction of the corporate concept, of their endless inventiveness, of the birth of mass production - all are told here.

This book relives the history of the social and technological revolution that shaped manufacturing, its dominance in the Connecticut economy of 100 years and its slow decline since 1960.
