Название: Extractives, Manufacturing, and Services: A Historiographical and Bibliographical Guide
Авторы: Whitten D.O. (ed.), Whitten B.E. (ed.)
A collection of historical and bibliographical essays on American industry as defined by the Standard Industrial Classification Code. After an introductory chapter on US business history in general, the present volume treats manufacturing only. No indication is given of the publication of future volumes on nonmanufacturing industries. Industries are covered at a very general level (2 digit SIC). A few more specific industries are included (3 digit SIC). For example, one section covers electric and electrical equipment (36) and includes articles on household appliances (363) and electric lighting (364) but not household audio and video equipment (365). Some major industries such as printing and publishing are not represented at all. As in most collections of essays, quality and coverage vary. Articles are signed and a list of contributors with their credentials is included. These essays would serve as an excellent starting point for anyone interested in the history of an industry. Research on the current state of US industry would require searching the standard periodical indexes. Recommended for graduate academic business collections.
