A Comparative History of Commerce and Industry, Volume I: Four Paths to an Industrialized World – 1st ed. 2016 Edition ( 2015 )
With the business landscape constantly in flux, researchers and analysts look to historical trends to better predict the future of modern business. A Comparative History of Commerce and Industry, Volume I offers a subjective review of how the cultural, social, and economic institutions of commerce and industry evolved in the four industrialized nations of the United States, Great Britain, Germany, and Japan to produce the institution we now know as the business enterprise. This ambitious book offers a multidisciplinary view of the birth and evolution of commerce in these four nations, from the Kamakura Shogunate in 12th century Japan to Europe’s global leadership in the 1920s.
It offers insight on the events that have shaped-and continue to shape-national character, and provides academics, researchers, and students with an overview of commerce and industry that will further their understanding of the future of business and its implications.
