A glossary in the back matter provides students with quick-reference business definitions.
Thorough bibliographic citations for each entry, along with a Resource Guide to books, journals, and web sites in the back matter, provide students with references for further reading to helpfully extend their research journey beyond the pages of the encyclopedia.
