Steel City: Entrepreneurship, Strategy, and Technology in Sheffield, 1743-1993


The book focuses on the historical evolution of firms, and industry leaders and their strategies. Sheffield's experience is then related to current historical and economic debates about industrial structure, entrepreneurship and UK decline. Sheffield is revealed (with some important qualifications) as a remarkably enduring and successful center; and also a highly complex one, which cannot be fitted easily into present theories of mass production and entrepreneurial failure.
