'As the editor of this welcome collection of essays makes clear in his introduction, the history of mining development weaves together numerous important themes, political, economic, and social. ... Scholars in a number of fields will find much interest in these essays, covering mining history in all its forms, but also business- government relations and the connections between mining development and territorial expansion. Revisiting some old debates, they also open fresh and intriguing avenues for future research.' Enterprise & Society 'For those interested in the Gilded Era of the United States or the expansion of the British Empire in the nineteenth century or, more broadly, the emergence of the modern international corporation in the mining sector, this volume has much to offer.' Itinerario 'Overall this book contains a well-chosen collection of interesting histories that are pulled together in fine fashion by the introduction, in a well-presented and well finished volume.'
