about

For centuries states have attempted to increase their national wealth and power by protecting and promoting certain privileged enterprises. Since the 1960s this phenomena has accelerated with the emergence of 'national champions' - firms socially selected and promoted by governments to carrythe national flag into the internationally competitive arena.This volume focuses on how European national champions have fared in an increasingly globalized industrial context. After setting the four national policy contexts of France, Germany, Britain, and Italy, it considers four major industrial sectors comparatively: electricity, aerospace, airtransport, and telecommunications. It goes on to examine the binational collaboration involved in the Channel Tunnel project.It concludes with an assessment of the increasing impact of the European Union on Europe's national champions as they lose their national identity and monopoly status and become Europeanized, globalized, and hybridized.
Jack Hayward is a Professor and Director of the Centre for European Politics, Economics, and Society, University of Oxford.

Editorial Reviews

`Excellent book ... Industrial Enterprise and European Integration deserves to be most highly recommended. It merits particular applause for its perceptive analysis of ambiguity: of national firms and their multifaceted hybridisation, of nation states and their at times uneasy co-existencewith the European Community, of the community itself and its hesitant search for solutions to deep-rooted industrial problems.'Business History
