This is the first book to summarise the twentieth century economic history of the Netherlands from a business history perspective. It has a broad historical coverage of Dutch business development including in particular the major multinationals such as Philips, Shell, and Unilever. Although focused on Dutch business it has a strong international flavour.

About the Series

Routledge International Studies in Business History

Recent years have seen an explosion of research in business history. Business history is now seen variously as a key to understanding a vital aspect of the past, a source of parallels and insights into modern business practice, and a way of understanding the evolution of modern business practice. This series is not limited to any single approach, and explores a wide range of issues and industries.

Authors wishing to submit proposals for publication consideration in the Routledge International Studies in Business History series can contact series editors Jeffrey Fear (Jeffrey.Fear@glasgow.ac.uk) and Christina Lubinski (cl.mpp@cbs.dk)
