Many congratulations to Mark Freeman and his co-authors, Robin Pearson (Hull) and James White (Lancaster), for their major achievement in being awarded the 2013 Ralph Gomory prize for Business History for their book Shareholder Democracies: corporate governance in Britain and Ireland before 1850 (University of Chicago Press, 2012).
The prize, made possible by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, recognizes historical work on the effects of business enterprises on the economic conditions of the countries in which they operate. It is awarded by the Business History Conference, the leading international association in the field, so is a tremendous international recognition.
