This book is a comparative study which analyzes the strategies adopted by the two chemical giants of the twentieth century, IG Farben and ICI, in their quest initially for world market domination and then, during and after the Second World War, for their very survival. The book traces each company's origins, research, rearmament and post-war planning as well as the role of governments on corporate structure and post-war stability.
