Allianz and the German insurance business, 1933-1945 by Gerald D Feldman( )

25 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and German and held by 1,818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This history of the internationally prominent insurance corporation Allianz AG in the Nazi era is based largely on new or previously unavailable archival sources. Feldman takes the reader through varied cases of collaboration and conflict with the Nazi regime with fairness and a commitment to informed analysis. He touches on issues of damages in the Pogrom of 1938, insuring facilities used in forced labour camps, and the problems of de-Nazification and restitution. The broader issues examined in this study - cooperation with Nazi policies, the way in which profit, ideology, and opportunism played a role in corporate decision-making, and the question of how Jewish insurance assets were expropriated - are particularly relevant today given the ongoing international debate about restitution for Holocaust survivors. This book joins a growing body of scholarship based on free access to the records of German corporations in the Nazi era
The great disorder : politics, economics, and society in the German inflation, 1914-1924 by Gerald D Feldman( Book )

28 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and held by 1,232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a comprehensive study of the most famous and spectacular instance of inflation in modern industrial society--that in Germany during and following World War I.A broad, probing narrative, this book studies inflation as a strategy of social pacification and economic reconstruction and as a mechanism for escaping domestic and international indebtedness. The Great Disorder is a study of German society under the tension of inflation and hyperinflation, and it explores the ways in which Germany's hyperinflation and stabilization were linked to the Great Depression and the rise of
Army, industry, and labor in Germany, 1914-1918 by Gerald D Feldman( Book )

41 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in English and German and held by 1,061 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This innovative study by one of the leading specialists in the field examines the social and economic role of the German army in the nation's internal affairs during the First World War. This was the area in which the influence of the army was most direct and profound. Germany's wartime economic mobilisation was both planned and directed by the army, and as a consequence of this largely unanticipated responsibility, the army was compelled to cope with the great social conflicts of Imperial Germany. In the process of confronting the groups representing army and labour, the army paved the way for the establishment of collective bargaining in Germany and also created the foundations for the postwar inflation
Iron and steel in the German inflation, 1916-1923 by Gerald D Feldman( Book )

29 editions published between 1966 and 2017 in English and German and held by 1,001 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study explains how businessmen in the German iron and steel industry managed their enterprises, dealt with their customers, and acted in their relations with state and society during a period of war, revolution, and economic crisis. Because this industry occupied a central position in Germany during the inflation, the author's investigation illuminates certain crucial aspects of the Weimar Republic that have hitherto been relatively unexplored. The author explains how heavy industry--and particularly the iron and steel industry-successfully took advantage of shortages of raw materials and of inflation to gain the upper hand over customers in the manufacturing industries. He notes that it proved able to resist government and consumer efforts to change and control policies affecting heavy industry and, finally, to lead the counterattack against labor's greatest gain in the Revolution of 1918, the eight-hour day. Although the importance of iron and steel to the German economy declined in relation to that of more advanced sectors of the economy, its highly concentrated character, able leadership, and importance to the war and reconstruction efforts gave it advantages in reconstituting its power within the business community and the Weimar state.

The Treaty of Versailles : a reassessment after 75 years( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book on the Treaty of Versailles constitutes a new synthesis of peace conference scholarship. It illuminates events from the armistice in 1918 to the signing of the treaty in 1919, scrutinizing the motives, actions, and constraints that informed decision making by the American, British, and French politicians who bore the principal responsibility for drafting the peace settlement. It also addresses German reactions to the draft treaty and the final agreement, as well as Germany's role in the immediate postwar period. The findings call attention to diverging peace aims within the American and Allied camps and underscore the degree to which the negotiators themselves considered the Versailles Treaty a work in progress. A detailed examination of the proceedings from the point of view of the main protagonists forms the core of the investigation."--Jacket

Networks of Nazi persecution : bureaucracy, business, and the organization of the Holocaust by Gerald D Feldman( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The persecution and mass-murder of the Jews during World War II would not have been possible without the modern organization of division of labor. Moreover, the perpetrators were dependent on human and organizational resources they could not always control by hierarchy and coercion. Instead, the persecution of the Jews was based, to a large extent, on a web of inter-organizational relations encompassing a broad variety of non-hierarchical cooperation as well as rivalry and competition. Based on newly accessible government and corporate archives, this volume combines fresh evidence with an interpretation of the governance of persecution, presented by prominent historians and social scientists."--Jacket

Industrie und Gewerkschaften, 1918-1924 : die überforderte Zentralarbeitsgemeinschaft by Gerald D Feldman( Book )

13 editions published between 1985 and 2010 in German and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Main description: Ein bisher unerschlossenes Kapitel aus der Geschichte der Weimarer Republik: der 1918 eingeleitete Versuch einer Kooperation zwischen Arbeitgebern und Arbeitnehmern, der letztlich et#x2013; folgenschwer et#x2013; scheiterte. Feldman/Steinisch untersuchen bisher wenig erforschte Aspekte der Geschichte der Weimarer Republik, die zugleich Licht auf die heutigen Probleme der industriellen Beziehungen und der Regierbarkeit hoch entwickelter Industriegesellschaften werfen. In einer ausführlichen einleitenden Analyse, auf die ein Dokumententeil folgt, werden sowohl die Erfolge als auch das Versagen der Zentralarbeitsgemeinschaft der industriellen und gewerblichen Arbeitgeber und Arbeitnehmer Deutschlands dargestellt. Die Arbeitsgemeinschaft war während der Revolutionswirren im November 1918 gegründet worden. Sie sollte einerseits die Revolution in geordnete Bahnen lenken helfen, auf die sich der wirtschaftliche und sozialpolitische Wiederaufbau Deutschlands gründen sollte. Die Dokumente illustrieren, wie gegen erheblichen Widerstand in den eigenen Reihen auf Arbeitgeber- und Gewerkschaftsseite versucht wurde, die großen Probleme der Nachkriegszeit gemeinsam zu lösen. Die Dokumente zum Kapp-Putsch und zum passiven Widerstand an der Ruhr, über die Lohndiskussion und die Produktivitätsfrage machen aber auch deutlich, wie schmal die Basis für eine Zusammenarbeit war
