Reviews

..."the Encyclopedia of African American Business History could represent a literal treasure trove for graduate students seeking disertation topics (as well as for established scholars seeking to diversify their research and publications). It has become almost a cliche to state that a book deserves both wide readership and to be on as many library shelves as possible. Nevertheless, in the case of Encyclopedia of African American Business History, such an assertion is entirely warranted."-Enterprise & Society
"This resource's focus on business makes it unique. Recommended for academic libraries as well as large public libraries."-Reference Books Bulletin
"A fine ready-reference source, this work culls a vast amount of material covering an eclectic range of subjects....An outstanding reference source on the various aspects of the history of African American business."-American Reference Books Annual
"Walker culled from many diverse sources this admirable and comprehensive encyclopedia of more than 200 signed entries dealing with the African American experience, 1600s-1990s....Recommended without reservation as a first purchase for most libraries."-Choice Review
