about

From 1918 to 1968, Czechoslovak auto manufacturing was marked by the growing influence of the American model of mass production and by the Sovietization of Czechoslovak society and industry. In this book, Valentina Fava examines how the stratification of foreign technical and organizational knowledge shaped Czechoslovak car production practices, contributing to the formation of a specific technical and organizational culture. This book studies and raises questions typical of company cases in business history and relative to Škoda corporate structure, performance, production processes, and product quality.

Valentina Fava is a researcher at the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies.

"[W]ell grounded in Czechoslovak and east central European historiography.. [S]cholars of industry in central and eastern Europe will find the volume useful, particularly as they pose the inevitable social and cultural questions now regularly raised in histories of automobilism in western Europe and the US.
