This pioneering work provides an index to over 1,700 biographies of prominent U.S. entrepreneurs, innovators and company executives published in over 120 biographical collected works which are identified, examined, and indexed here. These collected works cover a span of over 100 years and include men and women who shaped the history of American enterprise. In the past, collected works such as these have never been indexed but, finally, this book makes the biographies accessible to the general public. Wahib Nasrallah has created the only book available today that indexes these stories of corporate success as they are documented in collected works of biography. A large number of executive biographies are published in collected works that are rich with stories of American enterprise, male and female entrepreneurs of many ethnic backgrounds. Since these stories have never been indexed before, United States Entrepreneurs and the Companies They Built: An Index to Biographies and Collected Works is a central research tool in both academic and corporate worlds.
