"This is the definitive European work on the Harvard (Chandler) model of the strategy and structure of large corporations. After a balanced survey of alternatives and a measured denunciation of the excesses of Chandler's caricatures, Whittington and Mayer comprehensively confront the theory with empirical evidence and unmodishly but convincingly reaffirm the power of the Chandlerian perspective on diversification and divisionalization."--Leslie Hannah, Dean of City University Business School
