    Abstract

    On the back of recent and significant new contributions to debates over the use of history within business and management studies, we consider the perception of historians as being anti-theory and of having methodological shortcomings; and business and management scholars displaying insufficient attention to historical context and their own privileging of certain social science methods over others. These are explored through an examination of three subjects where calls for more historical research have recently been made: strategy, international business, and entrepreneurship. We propose a framework for advancing the use of history within business and management studies more generally through greater understanding of historical perspectives and methodologies.
