This volume is concerned with developments in wartime administration, economy, and manpower resources in Germany and its occupied territories from 1939-1941. It examines the mobilization of material and personnel resources in the German sphere of power for an industrialized conduct of the war. Indissolubly linked with this issue is the question of the way in which the regime's ideology affected that mobilization process, and why the 'opportunity' which the war
offered for an organizational restructuring of this sector was not taken.
The authors have produced a problem-oriented account, providing - by a detailed presentation of government practice - a multitude of insights into the regime's governmental structures.
