The Oxford Handbook of Business History, edited by Geoffrey Jones and Jonathan Zeitlin (ISBN13: 9780199263684; 736 pages; U.S.$150) “provides a state-of-the-art survey of research in business history.” A Q&A with one of the authors explains further:
Sean Silverthorne: What is the purpose of the book, and who is the intended audience?
Geoff Jones: The purpose of this book is to provide a state-of-the-art overview of business history research worldwide. It seeks to speak to researchers in management, economics, sociology, and history who want to know about the latest research in business history, as well as to a wider audience beyond academia, including practitioners, who are interested in learning from the past of business.
It’s not beyond the bounds of possibility that a legal librarian or a lawyer or two might be interested as well.
