The fully updated fifth edition of Encyclopedia of Global Industries chronicles the history, development and current status of the world's most lucrative and high-profile industries. The Encyclopedia includes comprehensive, international coverage organized by industry, providing a unique blend of overview and outlook. The work consists of approximately 125 detailed profiles of major global industries, such as mining, pharmaceuticals, motor vehicles and many others. Typical industry entries cover size and economic/social impact; organization and structure; history and development; major countries and companies, including rankings; size and nature of the work force; and a bibliography of further reading sources.
"Indexes continue to be detailed and the geographic index is particularly useful for those wishing to begin their search for industries in one country. This volume will be a welcome update for public and academic libraries."
