about

This book offers an in-depth exploration of the international phenomenon of enlightened paternalist capitalism and social engineering in the golden age of capitalism in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, and France. Erik de Gier shows how utopian socialist, religious, and craft-based ideas influenced the welfare work and educations programs offered by paternalistic businesses in different ways from nation to nation, looking closely at sites like the Pullman community in Chicago and Port Sunlight in the UK. Gier brings the book fully up to date with a brief comparison to contemporary welfare capitalism in our highly flexible working world.
 
Erik de Gier is emeritus professor of business administration at Radboud University, Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
