Historical Encyclopedia of American Business Review

“Not just for business—those researching American history, economics, and social studies will find the Historical Encyclopedia of American Business a good starting place for research from the earliest colonization and extending through the recent economic problems…

The breadth of entries, multiple access points, and the organization of both the print and the online versions make this a significant resource highly recommended for all public and academic libraries.”
-RUSA, 2009

“This is a superb reference, thoughtfully conceived and edited, that will be valuable to students and general readers.”
-Booknews, 2009

“Articles target high school students and above and do not depend on extensive familiarity with business and economics nomenclature. The range of topics makes this set valuable in support of a variety of standards common to U.S. history and American government courses… this new work offers clear and concise material that would be of great value to most high school or public library collections. Highly recommended for high school and public libraries.”
-Doug’s Student Reference Room, 2009

“Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through graduate students; general readers.”
-CHOICE, 2009

“BOTTOM LINE Succinct yet comprehensive, this work is required reading on the subject. Highly recommended for both public and academic libraries.”
-Library Journal, 2009

“This three-volume work should fill a niche for broad-based business information that smaller academic libraries, community colleges, middle-size public libraries, and large high school libraries might need… This is a good overview to many of the issues that have helped to shape our current business environment. These topics have been discussed in part in many books that discuss American history and economic history; here the material has been gathered together to create a good overview of business history. The articles are clear and not too technical.”
