Understanding oil is essential for understanding modern history. The 20th century has rightly been called the century of oil, and the importance of this most strategic of commodities shows now sign of abating in the 21st century. From its creation in 1907 Royal Dutch Shell has played a key role in the global oil industry. For most of the 20th century Royal Dutch Shell was either the largest, or after Standard Oil/Exxon, the second largest oil company. This authoritative and meticulously researched history three volume history provides an unparalleled account of the company's rich and diverse history. It shows how access to oil was both the cause of many a conflict, and a key to victory in wars fought for other causes. Oil powered the economy and provided the raw materials for products such as plastics, detergents, and pesticides which radically changed our culture and material environment. The first volume, by Joost Jonker and Jan Luiten van Zanden covers the development of Royal Dutch Shell from the foundation of the two main constituting companies until the outbreak of the Second World War, years of rapid growth, when the company was dominated by Henri Deterding.The second volume by Stephen Howarth and Joost Jonker takes the story from the Outbreak of the Second World War to the first oil crisis of 1973. Volume three by Keetie Sluyterman highlights how Shell faced up to the nationalizations in the oil industry in the 1970s, and to the challenges of collapsing oils price in the 1980s; and concludes in the 21st century when once again nationalizations and concerns about oil supply resurfaced, and how the two parent companies were finally unified. Based on unrestricted access to Royal Dutch Shell's archives, these beautifully designed and illustrated books provide a unique insight into one of the world's great companies
At home on the world markets : Dutch international trading companies from the 16th century until the present by Joost Jonker( Book )
17 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 130 libraries worldwide
Annotation The Dutch economy has relied on trade for centuries. During the seventeenth century the Netherlands experienced a Golden Age built largely on commercial enterprise, and trade continues to be the golden link in the supply chain from producers to consumers. Yet we know very little about the business of trade and the people involved in it. What was the nature of their work, and how did it evolve through the ages?In the lavishly illustrated At Home on the World Markets Joost Jonker and Keetie Sluyterman look at mercantile dynasties -- such as the Trips and the Van Eeghens -- and companies -- such as the famous Dutch East Indian Company VOC and the modern trading company Hagemeyer -- that have been largely unstudied. They describe the evolution of a unique economic sector that occupies a key position in the supply chain from producers to consumers

The emergence of the corporate form by Giuseppe Dari-Mattiacci( Book )
4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"We describe how the business corporation gradually emerged in the 17th century in response to the need to lock in long-term capital to profit from trade opportunities with Asia. Since contractual commitments to lock in capital were not fully enforceable in partnerships, this evolution required a legal innovation, essentially granting the corporation a property right over capital. Locked-in capital exposed investors to a significant loss of control, and could only emerge where and when political institutions limited the risk of expropriation. The Dutch East India Company (VOC, chartered in 1602) benefited from the restrained executive power of the Dutch Republic and was the first business corporation with permanent capital. The English East India Company (EIC, chartered in 1600) kept the traditional cycle of liquidation and refinancing until, in 1657, the English Civil War put the crown under strong parliamentary control. We show how the time advantage in the organizational form had a profound effect on the ability of the two companies to make long-term investments and consequently on their relative performance, ensuring a Dutch head start in Asian trade that persisted for two centuries. We also show how other features of the corporate form emerged progressively once the capital became permanent"--Abstract
