From Library Journal:

Entrepreneurs have played an important role in American economic history from colonial times to the present, and notable entrepreneurs in American history are the subjects of Sobel and Sicilia's book. The authors examine the lives and fortunes of such individuals as Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, Montgomery Ward, and present-day innovators Frank Perdue and Mary Kay Ash. Through examination of these entrepreneurs in the framework of different times and sets of circumstances, the authors maintain that "common elements of entrepreneurship can be seen." This book, a companion volume to a prime-time TV series to be presented this fall, is recommended for both academic and public libraries. Lucy Heckman, St. John's Univ. Lib., Jamaica, N.Y. The 1857 Sepoy Mutiny remains one of the most controversial, fascinating, and written about events in British imperial history. Yet, as this work demonstrates in a brilliant fashion that is certain to stir scholarly contention, the rebellion still provides ample material for the historian. Using letters of four young lieutenants who participated in the conflict as his central source, and analyzing them with sophisticated (if at times a bit questionable) computer-based psychoanalytic techniques, Broehl produces a highly readable work which is at once "faction" and a highly original contribution in the field. Whatever one thinks of the author's approach, this is essential for academic collections. James A. Casada, History Dept., Winthrop Coll., Rock Hill, S.C.
