Originally published in 1982, this book is a survey of the world tin industry up until the late 20th Century. The author used many scattered and hard to access journal sources in the course of the book’s research. The book gives a wide-ranging picture of the world tin market and discusses factors affecting the market; the behaviour of production and consumption; trends and fluctuations in prices and costs; the role of foreign capital and technology in an industry with a substantial degree of state ownership and growing state participation in developing countries; the problems of market stabilization; the adequacy of world supplies and the problems of resource conservation.
