Description: "The Dalton area in northwest Georgia dominates carpet production in the United States, manufacturing some 70 percent of the domestic product and priding itself as the carpet capital of the world. Carpet Capital is a story of revolutionary changes that transformed both an industry and a region. Its balanced and candid account details the rise of a homegrown, entrepreneur-driven industry at a time when state and local governments around the South sought to attract capital and technology from outside the region."
