European business, dictatorship, and political risk, 1920-1945( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For much of the twentieth century, the prevalence of dictatorial regimes has left business, especially multinational firms, with a series of complex and for the most part unwelcome choices. This volume, which includes essays by noted American and European scholars such as Mira Wilkins, Gerald D. Feldman, Peter Hayes, and Wilfried Feldenkirchen, not only sets business activity in its political and social context; it also describes some of the strategic and tactical responses of firms investing from or into Europe to a myriad of opportunities and risks posed by host or home country authoritarian governments during the interwar period. Although principally a work of history, it puts into perspective some commercial dilemmas with which practitioners and business theorists must still unfortunately grapple." -- rear cover

This study of business in Europe aims to reflect the changing structure, experience and aspirations of European business as it approaches the Millennium. The challenge of globalization, co-operation within a single European market, and an increasing interest in corporate governance and environmental issues are illustrative of the changes which not only affect contemporary business enterprises, but also stimulate new types of scholarship among business archivists. Increasingly, an interest in single industries in one country is being replaced by comparative analysis embracing several countries, whilst the definition of "business history" has widened to embrace social and political issues. This book intends to exploit these changes by serving as a forum for debate in Europe. It contains academic research on aspects of European business history, but emphasizes works of synthesis, comparative studies of business activity, and reviews of research work in individual countries, including assessments of major source materials and archives
