Routledge International Studies in Business History

Series Editor: Ray Stokes, Matthias Kipping

Recent years have seen an explosion of research in business history. Business history is now seen variously as a key to understanding a vital aspect of the past, a source of parallels and insights into modern business practice, and a way of understanding the evolution of modern business practice. This series is not limited to any single approach, and explores a wide range of issues and industries.

Authors wishing to submit proposals for publication consideration in the Routledge International Studies in Business History series can contact series editors Ray Stokes (r.stokes@socsci.gla.ac.uk) and Matthias Kipping (mkipping@schulich.yorku.ca).
