About the Authors
  • Providing fresh insights into the interaction between politics and business in twentieth-century Europe, this book indicates the complexity of the relationship--particularly in the environment of the 1920s and 1930s--when fascism was at its height. Distinctive contributions are also made regarding the contrasting behaviors of businessmen and institutions in response to the Great Depression; the rise of Hitler and the "Jewish question"; the role of business networks in the politics of Belgium and Greece; and the business-politics dimension in the formation of the Irish Republic.

    • Offers a series of high-profile, original studies on politics and business in twentieth-century Europe
    • Ranges across eight countries, tackling important historical questions relating to their history
    • The book honours the achievements of the internationally well-known economic and business historian Professor Alice Teichova
