Drawing on prodigious research in German corporate and government archives, Peter Hayes argues that the IG Farben chemicals combine, Nazi Germanys largest corporation, proved unable to influence national policy outside the firms sphere of expertise. Indeed, the most infamous aspects of Nazi policy occurred despite IG Farbens advocacy of alternative courses of action. Nonetheless, Farben grew rich under the Nazi regime and was directly involved in some of its greatest crimes. This edition has a new preface that incorporates new developments and research in the field.
