Description

This book features an examination of the relationship between labor relations and public life in the Saar river valley that traces the wider political-ideological changes of the era. Germany's rise from newly formed nation-state on the European continent to global industrial power during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was propelled by the rapid expansion and transformation of its heavy industries, especially coal mining, iron and steel-making, electrical engineering, and chemical production.In ""Work, Race, and the Emergence of Radical Right Corporatism in Imperial Germany"", Dennis Sweeney explores this transformation in industrial organization and its connections to, and consequences for, German political culture in the early twentieth century. Focusing on the changing discourse, representations, and institutions that gave shape and meaning to factory work and labor conflict in the Saar, the book demonstrates the ways in which Saar factory culture and labor relations were constituted in wider fields of public discourse and anchored in the institutions of the local-regional public sphere and the German state. The volume will be of interest to scholars and students of labor, industrial organization, ideology and political culture, and the genealogies of Nazism.
