The fall of the Bell system : a study in prices and politics by Peter Temin( Book )

24 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and held by 1,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book traces and analyzes the events that resulted in the breakup of AT & T, the largest corporate reorganization in history. As the author demonstrates, AT & T's status eroded over many years. That process of erosion began when the FCC allowed competition into small corners of the telecommunications system, while professing support for the overall status of AT & T. But as the FCC should have foreseen, the structure of regulatory prices provided a generous price umbrella for the new entrants into telecommunications. Each time the FCC allowed more entry, both the entrants' expected profits and the demand for still more entry rose
The rise of the corporate commonwealth : U.S. business and public policy in the twentieth century by Louis Galambos( Book )

15 editions published between 1988 and 1998 in English and held by 934 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors take the reader from the world of J.P. Morgan, when a private network of investment banks presided over a tumultuous market of competing entrepreneurial firms, to the world of Lee Iacocca, where the power of even the most celebrated chief executive is more than matched by the government. Morgan commanded; business leaders of the 1980s negotiate. Over the course of the twentieth century, corporations developed new means of innovating and of achieving efficiency and control of their political and market environments. -- Book Jacket

The creative society--and the price Americans paid for it by Louis Galambos( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Creative Society is the first history to look at modern America through the eyes of its emerging ranks of professional experts, including lawyers, scientists, doctors, administrators, business managers, teachers, policy specialists, and urban planners. Covering the period from the 1890s to the early twenty-first century, Louis Galambos examines the history that shaped professionals and, in turn, their role in shaping modern America. He considers the roles of education, anti-Semitism, racism, and elitism in shaping and defining the professional cadre and examines how matters of gender, race, and ethnicity determined whether women, African Americans, and immigrants from Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East were admitted to the professional ranks. He also discusses the role professionals played in urbanizing the United States, keeping the economy efficient and innovative, showing the government how to provide the people a greater measure of security and equity, and guiding the world's leading industrial power in coping with its complex, frequently dangerous foreign relations"--
Networks of innovation : vaccine development at Merck, Sharp & Dohme, and Mulford, 1895-1995 by Louis Galambos( Book )

22 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Networks of Innovation offers an historical perspective on the manner in which private-sector organizations have acquired, sustained, and periodically lost the ability to develop, manufacture, and market new serum antitoxins and vaccines. The primary focus is on the H. K. Mulford Company, on Sharp and Dohme, which acquired Mulford in 1929, and upon Merck et Co Inc., which merged with Sharp and Dohme in 1953. By surveying a century of innovation in biologicals, the authors are able to analyze the conditions that either promoted or prevented creative changes in this important industry. They show how the activities of these three commercial enterprises were related to a series of complex, evolving networks of scientific, governmental, and medical institutions in the United States and abroad. This is the first such history to draw exclusively on sources internal to Merck, one of the world's leading innovators in modern vaccines and pharmaceuticals
The moral corporation--Merck experiences by P. Roy Vagelos( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Merck and the pharmaceutical industry are headline news today. Controversies over public safety, prices, and the ability of the industry to develop the new drugs and vaccines that society needs have been covered worldwide. Roy Vagelos, who was head of research and then CEO at Merck from the mid-1970s through the early 1990s, addresses these issues here. Success with targeted research started Merck on a path that would lead to a series of block-buster therapies that carried the firm to the top of the global industry in the 1990s and Vagelos into the top position at the company. Trained as a physician and scientist, he had to learn how to run a successful business while holding to the highest principles of ethical behavior. He was not always successful. He and his co-author explain where and why he failed to achieve his goals and carefully analyze where he succeeded

The first cluster of studies explores four cross-cutting topics, including surveys of the changes in industry structure, corporate strategies, plant technologies, governmental policies, finance, and corporate governance. The second cluster of studies comprises nine country surveys that examine the experiences of representative nations in chemical production and foreign trade. By combining the similar historical cases of a few nations (such as Sweden, Norway, and Finland), the authors are able to deal with eleven chemical-producing nations, including all of the leaders in this area as well as some of the important followers

An annotated bibliography of selected publications, 1991-2010, on Dwight David Eisenhower by Jessica Ziparo( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dwight David Eisenhower, who came from the other side of the railroad tracks in the small town of Abilene, Kansas, became the Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force in Europe in 1943. He led this combined force through the perilous D-Day landings in France and on to a final victory of Nazi Germany in 1945. Following the Second World War, Eisenhower served as Chief of Staff of the United States Army, as President of Columbia University, and as a Supreme Commander of the military forces of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. This annotated bibliography will hopefully help others carry forward these debates through the study of Eisenhower and his times
The third industrial revolution in global business by Giovanni Dosi( Book )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in this volume probe the impact the digital revolution has had, or sometimes failed to have, on global business. Has digital technology, the authors ask, led to structural changes and greater efficiency and innovation? While most of the essays support the idea that the information age has increased productivity in global business, the evidence of a "revolution" in the ways industries are organized is somewhat more blurred, with both significant discontinuities and features which persist from the "second" industrial revolution. Chapter One Technological Revolutions and the Evolution of Industrial Structures. Assessing the Impact of New Technologies upon the Size, Pattern of Growth and Boundaries of Firms Giovanni Dosi, Alfonso Gambardella, Marco Grazzi, Luigi Orsenigo Introduction There is little doubt that over the last three decades the world economy has witnessed the emergence of a cluster of new technologies - that is a new broad techno-economic paradigm in the sense of Freeman and Perez (1988) - centered on electronic-based information and communication technologies. Such ICT technologies did not only give rise to new industries but, even more importantly, deeply transformed incumbent industries (and for that matter also service activities), their organizational patterns, and their drivers of competitive success"--

The papers of Dwight David Eisenhower by Dwight D Eisenhower( Book )

64 editions published between 1978 and 2001 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Completing a monumental project that began with publication of The War Years in 1970, this final set of volumes of The Papers of Dwight David Eisenhower contains 1,783 documents drawn from Eisenhower's second term as president from 20 January 1957 to 20 January 1961. In these years Eisenhower worked hard to hold the focus of American national politics on the two major objectives he had set for his presidency in 1952: to sustain the policy of containment without precipitating a war with the Soviet Union and to reduce the role of the federal government in U.S. domestic affairs. In both cases, events at home and abroad intruded & mdash;diverting attention to immediate problems, endangering the peace, and forcing the White House to devote most of its leadership to the crises of the day. As president during this tense period, Eisenhower maintained an extensive and revealing correspondence with prominent individuals as well as with personal friends. These letters, together with the occasional entries made in his diary, shed considerable light upon the major national concerns of the 1950s. The volumes also include private and secret correspondence previously unavailable to scholars. Some of these items have been only recently declassified, and many appear here in print for the first time. Taken as a whole, the Eisenhower papers from 1957-61 provide firm documentary evidence of the manner in which Eisenhower dealt with the complex internal and external problems faced by all of our modern political leaders
