"Concept of the Corporation is a valuable text for anyone teaching business history (broadly defined) or the history of political economy. Drucker describes one of the most important American companies at the apex of its success and elucidates the context in which it operated: labor relations, politics, regulation, and even the impact of war. At the same time, Drucker is interested in the larger issues affecting company operations, and he discusses them in a clear, often original way, with an appealing mix of pragmatism and optimism."
