A diverse and dynamic branch of American journalism, the specialized business press has helped to shape our trades, our industries, our businesses, our professions--our economic way of life. This volume provides a glimpse into the specialized business press. It includes profiles, arranged alphabetically, of some 70 periodicals, reflecting the diversity of the specialized business press. The selection of journals was based on the publication's historical importance, dominance in the field, and editorial excellence. Each entry provides a historical profile of the journal, a discussion of its editorial policies, personnel, and changes throughout its development, and concludes with appended bibliographic and source information and historical data. The work provides a valuable source of information on these journals.
