Editorial Reviews


The Handbook's 25 chapters (and its 88-page index) are an admirable demonstration that scholarship in business history is energetic and fruitful, and that research in the field is pushing ahead in new directions. In particular they demonstrate the growing, post-Chandlerian links between business history and adjacent disciplines such as history, economics, economic development, cultural studies and management science.
