A microeconomic study of several manufacturing plants in (the former) East Germany as they make the change from a planned to a market economy. Begins with an assessment of their efficiency and productivity just after German unification, and follows their tribulations as they cope with drastic changes in their markets and in the socio-economic environment generally. Also compares the firms to comparable ones in (the former) West Germany and in (the still) Northern Ireland, and suggests better training, technology transfer, and inter-company cooperation. No index. Acidic paper. Distributed in the US by Ashgate. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
