Culture is now seen as fundamental in understanding economic performance in businesses and nations. This pioneering interdisciplinary collection brings together economists, sociologists and business historians to explore the issues involved. The business history focus provides an ideal way to relate the conceptual questions to empirical investigation. The book will therefore interest readers in the social sciences and management studies.
