Excerpt

When in January and February 1934 I was lecturing in the University of Cambridge about industrial combination in Germany I became impressed with the idea of dealing more fully with what is at present one of the foremost English industrial problems. As I was one of the first to write on English monopoly organisations and have some knowledge of the special features of the problem in England I felt myself qualified to write a book with the express purpose of comparing the German and English conditions of quasi-monopoly. Whether I have succeeded in doing this the reader must decide. It may seem audacious to choose so comprehensive a title as Industrial Germany for a book which mainly describes and analyses certain aspects of industrial organisation. But in fact the problem of industrial combination is so intimately connected with the most prominent economic, organisational, administrative, legal, technical, financial and even sociological conditions of German industry that I am anxious to show by the title that the aim of the book is to draw a picture of cartels, concerns and trusts against a background of the general structural development of German industry.
