Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0882958275, Paperback)The second edition of A History of American Business has enjoyed tremendous popularity. One of the reasons for this success is the conscious attempt to stress the humanity of the business story. As the author states in the Preface, "Economic decision makers are, of course, human beings and not abstract entries on organization charts, and as such they are both fallible and fascinating. I do not believe the tide of historical events, including economic affairs, is inevitable. Rather, events are shaped by the choices made by individuals in positions of responsibility, drawing upon imcomplete knowledge and the assorted experiences they possess at a critical moment in time. For that reason, readers will continue to find in this second edition elaborations on the role of key business figures in each century of American history and less emphasis on quantification." Includes Illustrations, A Chronology of American Business, List of 25 Largest Industrial Corporations, Roster of 50 Most Influential Business Leaders, and a Glossary of American Business Terms.
