Dr Parnell provides a two-level analysis of the politics of government-industry relations in Germany. On the one hand, he presents an in-depth examination of the politics of the German coal industry. On the other, he offers a more general account of the characteristic relationship between state and industry in one of the most successful post-war economies. He argues that the crucial concept in understanding those relations is Selbstverwaltung (self-government). This notion, despite evolving over time, displays a continuity in its key features that serves to elucidate the unique position of the state in government-industry relations in Germany. The author argues that by shedding further light on existing theories of organized capitalism and corporatism, the notion of self-government can provide a basis for the analysis of broader socio-economic relations within the German-speaking world, and, in particular, the German economy's continued success.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Full and well written account of the rise and decline of the German mining industry.' Anglo-German Review
It is a complex tale to tell, and Parnell leads the reader through its complexities with admirable clarity and understanding ... this is an exceedingly well-informed study which will provide the reader with an excellent insight into a major aspect of the framework, as well as some of the causes, of the success of the German post-war economy. * Business History *
This work, which has a comprehensive bibliography and is well footnoted, is an excellent addition to Clarendon Press's series of books on Government-Industry relations and can be recommended to anyone interested in the development of the German political economy. * German Politics *
