America and the intellectual cold wars in Europe : Shepard Stone between philanthropy, academy, and diplomacy by Volker R Berghahn( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though shattered materially and psychologically by World War II, educated Europeans did not shed their opinions about the inferiority, vulgarity, and commercialism of American culture. American elites deeply resented this condescension. They believed that the United States had two culture wars to win: one against the Soviet Bloc as part of the larger struggle against communism and the other against deeply rooted negative views of America as a civilization. In 1958, Shepard Stone, then directing the Ford Foundation's International Affairs program, suggested that his staff "measure" America's cultural impact in Europe. He wanted to determine whether efforts to improve opinions of American culture were yielding good returns. This book uses Stone as a window to this world in which the European-American relationship was hammered out in cultural terms - an arena where many of the 20th century's major intellectual trends and conflicts unfolded

American big business in Britain and Germany : a comparative history of two "special relationships" in the 20th century by Volker R Berghahn( Book )

17 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While America's relationship with Britain has often been deemed unique, especially during the two world wars when Germany was a common enemy, the American business sector actually had a greater affinity with Germany for most of the twentieth century. American Big Business in Britain and Germany examines the triangular relationship between the American, British, and German business communities and how the special relationship that Britain believed it had with the United States was supplanted by one between America and Germany. Volker Berghahn begins with the pre-1914 period and moves through the 1920s, when American investments supported German reconstruction rather than British industry. The Nazi seizure of power in 1933 led to a reversal in German-American relations, forcing American corporations to consider cutting their losses or collaborating with a regime that was inexorably moving toward war. Although Britain hoped that the wartime economic alliance with the United States would continue after World War II, the American business community reconnected with West Germany to rebuild Europe's economy. And while Britain thought they had established their special relationship with America once again in the 1980s and 90s, in actuality it was the Germans who, with American help, had acquired an informal economic empire on the European continent. American Big Business in Britain and Germany uncovers the surprising and differing relationships of the American business community with two major European trading partners from 1900 through the twentieth century

Der erste Teil des Bandes enthält vier Essays zur Entwicklung der deutschen Wirtschafts- und Unternehmenshistoriographie im 20. Jahrhundert und deren Beeinflussung durch ausländische wissenschaftliche Strömungen. Im zweiten Teil geht es um die Wandlungen, die das deutsche Industriesystem über die beiden Weltkriege hinweg durchmachte, während es zugleich zunehmend unter den ökonomischen Anpassungsdruck der Hegemonialmacht Amerika und deren Wirtschaftskultur geriet. Der dritte Teil verschiebt die Analyse stärker auf die gesellschaftlichen Entwicklungen im Europa des 20. Jahrhunderts und fragt nach der Rolle, die die amerikanischen Sozialwissenschaften und die grossen amerikanischen Stiftungen dabei spielten
