The product of detailed empirical research into the politics of the electronics industry in Britain, France, and Germany, this book applies the Weberian theory of social closure to analyze competitive struggles in the industry. It shows how different combinations of market closure and competition arise from variations in technology, economic structure, and political regime and how general processes such as trade liberalization and technological change produce very different outcomes according to the specific features of the industry in its national context.
