Alfred D. Chandler (1918 2007) was the founder of modern business history. He was a critical early influence on strategic management and is famous for the dictum that structure follows strategy . This two-volume collection, a new title in the Routledge Major Works series, Critical Evaluations in Business and Management, gathers together the key journal articles and other vital research on Chandler to enable students and scholars to explore fully the impact of his ideas. Together with an extensive annotated bibliography and a full index, the collection has a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editors, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context. It is an essential work of reference and will be valued by scholars and students of business and management as a vital one-stop research and pedagogic resource."
