Edison and the Business of Innovation Zusammenfassung

Edison and the Business of Innovation Andre Millard (University of Alabama at Birmingham)

This is the story of the other Thomas Edison-not the heroic lone inventor, but Edison the businessman, industrialist, and successful manager of one of the world's largest industrial research laboratories. Tracing his career from his boyhood to his death in 1931, Edison and the Business of Innovation reveals Edison to be an entrepreneur of extraordinary vision. From extensive research in the Edison archives at West Orange, New Jersey, Andre Millard presents new information about Edison the businessman and provides new interpretations of old issues.

Edison and the Business of Innovation Bewertungen

An informative business history, illuminating Edison the businessman, industrialist, and manager, showing why he succeeded in some areas and failed in others and how he 'straddled the craft culture of the preindustrial age and the industrial capitalism of the nineteenth century' Journal of American History Millard modestly calls this book 'an advance party crossing the vast stretches of the Edison archives.' That it may be, yet his analysis of the rise and decline of the West Orange laboratory is not likely to be superseded. American Historical Review For anyone wishing to expand, in an accessible yet scholarly way, his or her understanding of this uniquely American icon, this is an excellent point of departure. -- Matthew Hill Journal of the American Musical Instrument Society 2008
