Aftalion, Fred, Benfey, Otto Thedor, McCurdy, Patrick
Fred Aftalion's international perspective of the history of chemistry integrates the story of chemical science with that of chemical industry. This new edition includes events from 1990 to 2000, when major companies began selling off their divisions, seeking to specialize in a particular business. Aftalion explores the pitfalls these companies encountered as well as the successes of "contrarians"--those companies that remained broad and diversified. He uses BASF, Dow, and Bayer as examples of true contrarians.Aftalion, Fred is the author of 'A History of the International Chemical Industry (Chemical Sciences in Society)', published 1991 under ISBN 9780812212976 and ISBN 0812212975.
