Ash Amin and Patrick Cohendet

This collection of cutting-edge research reviews the evolution of the American corporation, the dominant trends in the way it has been studied, and at the same time introduces some new perspectives on the historical trajectory of the business organization as a social institution. The authors draw on cultural theory, anthropology, political theory and legal history to consider the place of the firm in nineteenth and twentieth-century American Society.
