Description - The Emergence of Modern Retailing 1750-1950 by Gary Akehurst
This volume considers the emergence and development of modern retailing from an historical and management perspective in the period 1750-1950. The history of retail business development is an under researched area and these studies address the need for further research and provide examples of current research activity. The book considers the early emergence of retail forms in the late 18th century, the evolution of retail forms in the 19th century and the late adaptation of retail innovation in the early 20th century. This work brings together the literature from retail management as well as history. In this, it bridges the gap between the two disciplines. This gap in the understanding of the historical dimension within retail management studies and the understanding of retail management issues in history has hindered the development of valuable research in this area.
