Children's LiteratureCommerce goes on all around us daily. Business endeavors take various forms, and each of them involves the hopes and dreams of many people. In Business and Industry writers look at the multi-faceted world of commercialism. This eleven-volume set addresses a host of issues. They touch upon a host of subjects inclusive of economists, economic philosophers, corporations, concepts of finance, and many other related topics. Each comprehensive essay is for a junior or senior high school student. The writers are fair in their presentations. For example, Marxism, socialism, and more other leftist economic schemas are presented in a balanced manner. Likewise, some of the leading businesses are criticized for their records on environmental, wage, and outsourcing issues. Additionally, this reference set addresses a wide range of questions in a fashion that will catch the literary eye of its readers. Readers will learn about the origins of Communism and of labor unions and about what the stock market represents. The illustrations and sidebar selections augment the solid writing in these books. Schools or libraries wishing to expand their reference materials to address issues germane to business should consider this series. 2004, Marshall Cavendish, Ages 12 up.
