During the past decade, the role of Germany's economic elites under Hitler has once again moved into the limelight of historical research and public debate. This volume brings together a group of internationally known historians who have been at the forefront of recent research and whose articles provide an up-to-date synthesis of current knowledge in this field which is as comprehensive as it is insightful. The result is a volume that offers students and interested readers a brief but focused introduction to the role of German businesses and industries in the crimes of Hitler's Third Reich. Not only does this book treat the subject in an accessible manner, it also emerges as particularly relevant in light of current controversies over the nature of business-state relations, corporate social responsibility, and some of the negative aspects of globalization in the world today.
