The Oxford Encyclopedia of American Business, Labor, and Economic History offers students and scholars access to information about the concepts, institutions and organizations, events, and individuals that have shaped the history of business, labor, and economics from the origins of what later became the United States in an earlier age of globalization and the expansion of capitalism to the present. It includes entries that explore the changing character of capitalism from the seventeenth century to the present; entries that cover the evolution of business practices and organizations over the same time period; entries that describe changes in the labor force as legally free workers replaced a labor force dominated by slaves and indentures; entries that treat the means by which workers sought to better their lives; and entries that deal with government policies and practices that affected economic activities, business developments, and the lives of working people.
The Oxford Encyclopedia of American Business, Labor, and Economic History expands and updates the coverage of the subject matter in The Oxford Companion to United States History, the award-winning 2001 work edited by the late Paul Boyer.
