The Politics of German Codetermination

By Herbert J. Spiro
Harvard University Press, 1958
180 pp. $4.00

Though this is a short book, it provides a very thorough examination of the German arrangements for worker participation in management. The ideology, the law, operation in practice, and the political, economic and social effects are all examined. Much of the material is first hand. Perhaps the author attaches a bit too much importance to co-determination, but he makes a reasonable case for his view that it is having a significant influence on political and social attitudes and behavior.
