A history of small business in America by Mansel G Blackford( Book )

27 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: From the colonial era to the present day, small businesses have been an integral part of American life. First published in 1991 and now thoroughly revised and updated, A History of Small Business in America explores the central but ever-changing role played by small enterprises in the nation's economic, political, and cultural development. Examining small businesses in manufacturing, sales, services, and farming, Mansel Blackford argues that while small firms have always been important to the nation's development, their significance has varied considerably in different time periods and in different segments of our economy. Throughout, he relates small business development to changes in America's overall business and economic systems and offers comparisons between the growth of small business in the United States to its development in other countries. He places special emphasis on the importance of small business development for women and minorities. Unique in its breadth, this book provides the only comprehensive overview of these significant topics

BFGoodrich : tradition and transformation, 1870-1995 by Mansel G Blackford( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, BFGoodrich made rubber goods ranging from fire hoses to automobile tires and, in so doing, became one of the largest and most important rubber manufacturers in the world. The history of the BFGoodrich Company has been a complex blend of transformations and traditions, as this study of the company's history from the firm's founding in 1870 through its 125th anniversary in 1995 reveals. Mansel G. Blackford and K. Austin Kerr, two leading business historians, place the BFGoodrich story in the full context of the industries and the economic environments in which the firm operated. In what is more than an internal study, Blackford and Kerr examine BFGoodrich's strategies for growth in light of technological developments, changes in labor relations, and modifications in government-business relations that constantly reshaped how the firm and its competitors conducted business. Granted full access to corporate records and given full cooperation in interviews, with no restrictions placed on their writing, the authors provide an almost unprecedented look at how a major American institution evolved over more than a century

The rise of modern business : Great Britain, the United States, Germany, Japan, and China by Mansel G Blackford( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: The Rise of Modern Business compares and analyzes the development of business and business institutions in several countries from the preindustrial era to the present. Paying close attention to connections between business development and political, social, and cultural changes, Blackford addresses both manufacturing and nonmanufacturing firms, small firms as well as big businesses. For this third edition, he updates his study in light of new scholarship, with special attention paid to the structural diversity of business firms and with a timely discussion about the reciprocal relationship between business and the environment. The business history of Germany is extensively updated, and there is entirely new coverage of the business history of China, a country whose growing political and economic prowess on the world stage demands the historical and contextual understanding of business scholars today
Making seafood sustainable : American experiences in global perspective by Mansel G Blackford( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Analyzes the ramifications of overfishing for the United States by investigating how fishers, seafood processors, retailers, government officials, and others have worked together to respond to the crisis. Historian Mansel G. Blackford examines how these players took steps to make fishing in some American waters, especially in Alaskan waters, sustainable. Critical to these efforts, Blackford argues, has been government and industry collaboration in formulating and enforcing regulations. What can be learned from these successful experiences? Are they applicable elsewhere? What are the drawbacks? ... [The book] addresses these questions and suggests that sustainable seafood management can be made to work. The economic and social costs incurred in achieving sustainable resource usage are significant, but there are ways to mitigate them. More broadly, this book illustrates ways to manage commonly held natural resources around the world--land, water, oil, and so on--in sustainable ways."--Jacket

Fragile paradise : the impact of tourism on Maui, 1959-2000 by Mansel G Blackford( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From its modest beginnings in the prewar era, tourism has become the most important segment of Maui's economy since the 1970s. But as Mansel Blackford shows, it is also a devil's bargain. By switching the island's income base from sugarcane to condos, tourism has offered a solution to economic problems but also placed an unanticipated strain on Maui's infrastructure and made unexpected demands of its residents. As roads and sewers now have reached their limits and escalating property values have ousted kamaainas, the growth of the visitor industry has forced the people of Maui to make difficult choices about the future development of their island."--Jacket

The proposed plans were accepted or rejected in heated citywide elections in which, to be successful, businessmen had to convince others to vote with them - a feat they achieved in only one city. Nevertheless, these plans were often later adopted in some piecemeal fashion, and Blackford concludes his study with an analysis of the legacy of Progressive Era city planning for later periods
