This historical and comparative overview of family business examines the different relationships within family businesses and among family enterprises, as well as different political and institutional contexts. Andrea Colli compares the performance of family businesses with that of other economic organizations, and looks at how these enterprises have contributed to the evolution of contemporary industrial capitalism. He also analyzes the reasons for both the decline and persistence of family businesses.
