Synopsis: The five volumes of the International Directory of Company Histories bring together histories of the leading companies of the United States, Canada, the UK, Europe and Japan. Volume 2 covers: electronics, entertainment, financial services, food, health and personal care.

From Library Journal: This directory is part of a projected five-volume set that will cover approximately 1200 major businesses from North and South America, Australia, Europe, and Asia. Volume 1, published last year, covered businesses related to advertising through drugs; this volume covers businesses from electronics to food. The stated criteria incorporates companies with over $2 billion (U.S.) in sales or that "are leading influences in their respective industries or geographical locations." It is a good selection. Name; address; phone; whether public, private, or state owned; and company logo are provided. This is followed by a company history, two to three pages in length, sometimes longer. Some of the entries focus on the last 30 years, but more are well balanced, covering the entire life of the company, often noting how societal events affected the business. It is current enough to include Drexel Burnham's bankruptcy declaration of February 13, 1990. This volume does not appear to contain the many irritating although minor historical errors Volume 1 did. Major subsidiaries are appended to each history, but there are very few sources listed for further reading. No title directly compares with this; it does not compete with the heavily advertised and more extensive Encyclopedia of American Business History and Biography (Vol. 1: Facts on File, 1987), now being issued at $75 per volume for the proposed 52-volume set. Small libraries can only hope HarperCollins will revise the excellent Everybody's Business ( LJ 12/1/80), which gives fine short histories of major American companies. While the need for such extensive company histories can be questioned, this is an excellent work at a reasonable price.
