Présentation de l'éditeur

Taking a comparative and transnational perspective in its exploration of East and Western Europe, this volume analyses the history of industrial policy after the Second World War. It investigates differences and similarities, looks at transfers across national borders and locates industrial policy in the context of the Cold War. Moreover, it takes into consideration the global dimension, exploring how European industrial policy served as a model for development strategies in the 'Third World'. This collection brings together renowned and established scholars with a long reputation in this field and younger researchers who present fresh perspectives to a wider academic public. While historical analysis is at the core of the book, the authors traverse disciplines and methodologies, including economics, political sciences, sociology and European Studies. This reconsideration of the post-war era also contributes to our understanding of the present, given that the financial crisis has raised interest in new approaches of economic policy and industrial development.
