This book provides the first comparative, in-depth analysis of workplace relations in East and West Germany. The author examines the success of the institutional transfer of West German labour organizations to East German workplaces in an effort to address questions central to the discussion of workplace relations in transitional economies, including:
* can capitalist labour institutions be imposed on a former communist workforce?
* what conditions determine the success or failure of these institutions?
* can 'social partnership' between capital and labour be learned?
