Publisher's description: This book offers the first in-depth international survey of current research and debates in business history. Over the last two decades enormous advances have been made on the history of business enterprise and business systems. Historians are documenting and analyzing the evolution of a wide range of important companies, their patterns of innovation, production, and distribution, their financial affairs, their political activities, and their social impact. This volume provides a reference work which will be of immense value to historians, economists, management researchers and others concerned to access the latest insights on the evolution of business. Each chapter is written by a prominent authority who provides an up-to-date assessment of the state and significance of research in their area.

This new major textbook on business history brings together the expertise of two internationally renowned authors to provide a thorough overview of the developments in business- from just before the Industrial Revolution up to the globalization of businesses today.

The global economy : a concise history by Franco Amatori( Book )

15 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Global Economy - a Concise History traces the history of global economy over the past thousand years. In doing so, it explores all the main waves of globalization, from the trade revolution of the Middle Ages, to the Great and Little Divergence between the West and the East, as well as the North and the South of the World. This book examines the Industrial Revolution and the World Wars, and their respective consequences, as well as the interaction between technological shifts and the transition in geopolitical equilibria. The last chapters are dedicated to an in-depth examination of the transformation which occurred in the global economy after 1989. The chronological structure of the book is designed to help students memorize and understand key events. This book also discusses broader themes, such as convergence-divergence, growth and decline, development, and industrial revolutions. This will make it of interest not only to students and academics, but to all readers wishing to gain a deeper understanding of the history and current state of the global economy"--

Aéronautique, marchés, entreprises mélanges en mémoire d'Emmanuel Chadeau by Franco Amatori( )

1 edition published in 2018 in French and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emmanuel Chadeau, historien de l'économie, a laissé une œuvre originale. Spécialiste mondialement reconnu de l'histoire de l'aviation, il a exploré la genèse des grands programmes aérospatiaux européens (Concorde, Airbus, Ariane), mais aussi démonté les ressorts de l'économie de marché en France : persistance de l'entreprise familiale, organisation du commerce de détail, structuration des échanges, rôle économique de l'État, rapports entre décideurs publics et privés, etc. Le présent livre illustre la richesse du parcours intellectuel d'E. Chadeau : - d'une part, il reprend ses principales contributions, souvent difficilement accessibles, parfois publiées pour la première fois en français, retrace sa carrière et son oeuvre foisonnante - d'autre part, il rassemble une série d'articles inédits et de témoignages rédigés pour la circonstance par ses amis historiens et ses élèves, développant des thèmes qui lui étaient chers, de l'Ancien Régime à la fin du xxe siècle : étude de branches productives, stratégies et réseaux chez les milieux d'affaires de toutes envergures et les grands commis de l'État, économie des collectivités locales, enjeux mémoriels de l'histoire économique et sociale

L'approdo mancato : economia, politica e società in Italia dopo il miracolo economico by Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in Italian and English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'approdo mancato è un concetto che Mario Pirani propone nel 1991 in un testo pubblicato sulla rivista "Il Mulino". Tre le occasioni mancate su cui Pirani invitava a riflettere - l'elettronica, il nucleare, la distribuzione petrolifera - sostenendo che se avessimo colto queste opportunità saremmo pervenuti a un approdo giapponese. Franco Amatori riprende questa suggestione e propone di intendere, con questa espressione, approdo alla frontiera dell'economia mondiale. Era un fatto scontato che l'Italia, giunta alla fine del secolo scorso al quinto posto nel mondo per ricchezza prodotta annualmente, dovesse arretrare, così com'era inevitabile che subisse i rigori della crisi scoppiata negli Stati Uniti nel settembre del 2008. L'avvento della globalizzazione e l'ascesa dei cosiddetti Brics, in particolare della Cina, fanno sì che l'Italia non possa mantenere le sue posizioni. Allo stesso tempo, l'enorme massa dei titoli tossici non poteva non avere effetti sull'economia già gravata da un debito pubblico fra i più alti del mondo. Tuttavia, questi veri e propri uragani sarebbero stati affrontati in modo ben diverso se l'apparato economico e, in particolare, industriale italiano fosse stato di maggiore consistenza; se il paese avesse potuto avvalersi di una grande industria chimica, elettronica, automobilistica; se avesse avuto una più vasta diffusione delle nuove tecnologie dell'informazione e della comunicazione, se fosse stato più autonomo dal punto di vista energetico. La storia la si comprende se si studiano "come sono realmente andate" le cose. E tuttavia la questione rimane: Che cosa sarebbe accaduto se lo snodo del post miracolo economico (fine sessanta/ settanta) avesse prodotto un esito diverso?--
