This covers three of the areas of greatest current interest to British business historians - entrepreneurship and management, banking and finance, and enterprise in trade and industry. The essays have been commissioned specially from some of the best business historians in Britain. The volume emphasises the themes of enterprise and management as focused sharply in the evidence of business records. A broad introductory survey explores the development of business archives and business history, and this is followed by essays arranged in three sections. Part 1 debates the role and significance of the entrepreneur. Part 2 considers the development of banking and capital markets, and includes a review of 240 years of the Stock Exchange. Part 3 looks at business records, company and sector studies and at enterprise and policy issues.
