"In this important book leading scholars present new facts and brilliant insights concerning the legitimacy of the corporate giants that drive the irreversible processes of globalization. Wise managers will read it carefully." George C. Lodge, Harvard Business School
"While it is often tricky business to try to combine a variety of perspectives on any one subject, this ambitious, interdisciplinary approach to the study of the multinational corporation is vastly informative as well as path-breaking. Alfred Chandler and Bruce Mazlish have written fine bracketing essays that pull it all together. No one will come away from these well-chosen and erudite studies spanning history, economics, and sociology without a richer perspective on the multinational corporation and its evolving impacts." George Smith, NYU Stern School of Business

Readers should be warned. If this is your first attempt at studying industrial history, it is difficult going. It is not really "economics" in the usual way. Nor is it history as you have usually read it.
It is a series of case studies about the industrial development of nations all over the world, aimed at supporting some very controversial theses about what does and what does not work toward that end.
