Review to the Encyclopedia of Business and Finance

“This encyclopedia is designed to “summarize the body of knowledge that we know as business in one place and in language appropriate to the layperson.” The 315 articles cover the
major functional areas of business: accounting, economics, finance, information systems, law,
management, and marketing. Special emphasis is given to the topics of careers and business
ethics. While some articles emphasize the historical development of a topic, others focus on
current business activity and conditions.

The second edition contains more than 30 new articles, most of them related to technology, new areas of business knowledge, international topics, and new organizations and legislation.

Entries are arranged alphabetically and tend to be 500 to 1,500 words in length. A small
number of black-and-white photos, charts, and graphs is included. Each entry is accompanied
by a 5- to 10-item bibliography of books and, occasionally, Web sites. A few see and see also references are provided. All the articles are signed, and most of the authors are associated with
universities. However, some of the names in the contributors list are unaccompanied by any credentials or organizational affiliation.

The entries range widely in scope and cover topics such as Behavioral science movement,
Discount stores, Electronic commerce, Information processing, Money supply, Public relations,
and Taxation.
