Product description


Though whisper it quietly, much of research in business would bore the bum off a buffalo. This on the other hand is an interdisciplinary masterpiece standing between English literature and Management which is an exciting tale of risk, danger, piratical endeavour, plunder, deceit and daring-do in the Age of Projects. It is a beautifully realised narrative interweaving the rise of the Bank of England with the economy of Scotland, Daniel Defoes biography and the story of Moll Flanders. It provides literary enjoyment and real insight into the contemporary world in equal measure. Its a treasure. --Professor Gibson Burrell, Management, University of Leicester
