Product Description

Review

"The authors accurately describe this volume as an introductory work that draws together diverse threads of US business history; it provides a straightforward account of the rise of American big business, characterized by increasing efficiency and productivity alongside the growth of monopolistic forces….Readers will enjoy the way the authors, an academician and scholarly editor respectively, put modern business practices into historical context. This book provides a considerable amount of detail while being engaging enough to hold the interest of general readers and undergraduates. Recommended. Public and academic library collections, lower-division undergraduate and up."
