Overview

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.
