Originally published in 1935, this book presents the origins and structure of the industrial 'quasi-monopoly' in Germany in contrast to similar organizations in contemporary England. Levy discusses industrial cartels in a variety of fields, from film to steel, and the shift in public opinion on the acceptability of monopolies. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in German economic or industrial history.
