Join the School of International Service and the International Economic Relations Program in celebrating the launch of Prof. Stephen Silvia's newest book, "Holding the Shop Together: German Industrial Relations in the Postwar Era."
A prominent scholar of comparative industrial relations and labor markets and also of German politics, Dr. Silvia, in his new book, tackles the “oscillations of the Germany economy across the entire postwar period through one of its most important components: the industrial relations system”. He contends that the powerhouse German economy has been fueled by the strength of its industrial relations system, which has penetrated German capitalism more deeply than in any other state. Through this lens, he examines the Germany economy as a whole, the impact of Germany’s industrial relations on industrial relations abroad, the actions trade unions and employers’ associations, and the manner in which German labor and management teams have dealt with the crisis of membership losses.
The event is free to members of the American University community, as well as the general public. Refreshments will be served. We ask that those planning to attend RSVP here for planning purposes.
