Editorial Reviews

?Few historians claim to have offered a truly original interpretation, developed a new methodology, or created a unique approach within the discipline, but with the publication of this volume Dick Overton has provided a pioneering work in business history. He writes neither a dual biography nor simply edits the letters and speeches of these two railway leaders--Charles Elliott Perkins and Ralph Budd. Rather, Overton uses their writings to provide fascinating insights into the daily workings of the management of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad (CB&Q). ... This thoughtful blending of documents and historical analysis will be of interest to railway and transportation historians, but it also offers much to students of business history concerned with the evolution of managerial practices, administrative behavior, and corporate relations with the public, labor and government.?-Business History Review
