This thesis is concerned with the changes in the methods of organisation of business units In Great Britain in the period 1856 to 1914. By the term "methods of organisation of business units" we mean the methods by which the entrepreneur raised capital for the undertaking and the methods of control and direction of the unit that were adopted, We are not directly concerned with the size of the unit or the recruitment of labour power. The most conspicuous form of business organization that wan developed in this period was that of the limited liability company, and it is with the introduction of this form of business organisation, its use, and the changes that took place in its form and character that we have to deal.
