Long a student of American corporations, Mr. Berle scrutinizes and assesses their development in the decades since the appearance in 1932 of "The Modern Corporation and Private Property." As the title indicates, he finds the divorce between "ownership" and "control" to have increased, to the extent that the sources of power and responsibility have become extremely complex and involved.
