    The past shapes the present and plays into the future. Business History provides an overview of the development of the national and international economy, besides providing key insights into industrial structure and the evolution of business strategies. This collection presents some of the most important journal articles, written in English, on the business history of modern capitalism. The majority relate to the 20th century and all illuminate various aspects of the modern business system and the corporations (and small businesses) that have been its pillars. The articles have been arranged in five broad sections spanning the business environment, organizational development, globalization, entrepreneurship and management, and ethics and the environment. Within these prime divisions there are subordinate but discrete topics, such as the state and business; business and technical change; business strategy; corporate merger-making; multinational enterprise; small-and-medium enterprise; entrepreneurship; management; marketing; labour management; business culture; boardroom governance; business ethics; and corporate crime.
