Be the first. Krupp founded a small steel mill in , which established the basis for one of the largest and most important companies in the world by the end of the century. Famously loyal to its highly paid workers, it rejected an exclusive focus on profit, but the company also played a central role in the armament of Nazi Germany and the firm's head was convicted as a war criminal at Nuremberg.

Yet after the war Krupp managed to rebuild itself and become a symbol of Germany once again--this time open, economically successful, and socially responsible. Books on Krupp tend to either denounce it as a diabolical enterprise or celebrate its technical ingenuity. In contrast, James presents a balanced account, showing that the owners felt ambivalent about the company's military connection even while becoming more and more entangled in Germany's aggressive politics during the imperial era and the Third Reich.

By placing the story of Krupp and its owners in a wide context, James also provides new insights into the political, social, and economic history of modern Germany. More about this book Introduction [PDF] Reviews "Krupp is a meticulous company history, enhanced by the author's immersion in the company's archives.

The book is also, inevitably, the biography of a family. Krupp rewards a reader's effort. The book shows us not only a family and a company, but also the state in its various forms with which Krupp has been associated for two centuries.

The Krupp story remains troubling, but Mr. James has done much to give us a richer understanding of a company saddled with one ignoble chapter in a long history.

He allows the reader to do that. Balashankar, Organiser "Krupp has provided a reasonable, balanced summary of the company's history and the men driving it.

As such the book will be an interesting read for the layperson interested in business history in general and the disputed history of Krupp in particular.We'll publish them on our site once we've reviewed them. Continue shopping Checkout Continue shopping. Fritz Stern.
