About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1928, this book examines the growth of the German Works Councils from the institution of the Work Councils Act in 1919 up to 1926, and the effect the councils had on industrial relations. Guillebaud also includes translations of relevant legislation and other documents concerning the establishment and organisation of such councils in various companies and industries. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in trade union history or in the economic history of the early Weimar Republic.
