Glaxo is the world's second largest pharmaceutical corporation. This study of the company, from its beginnings to 1962, is based on unprecedented and unparalleled archival access to the company records. It gives a detailed account of the global operations of Glaxo, and describes not only the evolution of this international business, but studies its research and development programmes, its products, and its marketing and management. It is the first comprehensive study of a UK-based drugs company and one of the relatively few scholarly studies yet written of front-ranking world companies.
