Critical Acclaim
‘This volume undoubtedly fills a need. At the simplest level it satisfies the idle curiosity of the business historian as to his colleagues' ages, qualifications, and important publications. At a less facetious level, it provides an indication of the world wide health of the discipline, with around 750 entries from about 30 countries, with North America, Japanese and European entries predominating. . . . It will be a useful reference work.’
– John Amstrong, Business History

‘. . . this work should be purchased by major business collections and by those specialized information centers with relevant client interests.’
– Nigel Tappin, American Reference Books Annual
