The authors examine the restructuring of the world automobile industry in the 1980s, and draw data from an in-depth empirical study of three leading car companies in three different countries: the US, the UK, and Germany. They demonstrate that differences between firms and countries have had a major impact on the way in which change has come about. This book is an important contribution to the study of mass production industries throughout the world.
