The journal Industrial and Corporate Change (ICC) was first published in 1992. ICC’s editorial mission has been to apply interdisciplinary research approaches to interpret the complex phenomena indicated in its title. More specifically, the journal is intended as a forum in which industrial historians can engage with emerging concepts from the ‘relevant’ social sciences, while scholars from related disciplines are, in turn, encouraged to apply their models to the historical evidence. The editors have selected 13 articles reflecting the quality and diversity of ICC’s published output in the intervening period. The selection is designed to illustrate the powerful insights provided by several leading contributors to ICC and to stimulate readers to engage with their arguments. Publication of this volume also presents business historians with an opportunity to reflect on their impact, both within the pages of this influential journal, and upon the broader field of study that it has come to represent.
