From the Publisher
"Skrabec's writing is remarkably engaging and will be accessible even to high school students. This smart, efficient examination of pivotal events in U.S. business history is valuable as a stand-alone overview of American economic history and as a supplement to more traditional economic and business encyclopedias."
"Skrabec has produced an accessible reference work for American business history. Although based on stand-alone descriptions of historical events, it reads more like a single fascinating story with 100 short chapters. . . . This volume's concise treatment and chronological (rather than alphabetical) organization make it an excellent introduction to American business history."
"An excellent addition for most undergraduate institutions, high school libraries and public libraries when it comes to research."
"This volume will be of interest to just as wide a variety of libraries and patrons; public libraries, community colleges and other two-year programs, as well as universities and other larger institutions. The entries in this encyclopedia provide a starting point for each of the included events, but taken as a whole, they also paint a picture of business history."
