Importing Foreign Workers: A Comparison of German and American Policy

Front Cover
P. Lang, 1990 - Political Science - 245 pages
This study examines the interaction between major private interest groups and federal bureaucracies in making decisions to import foreign workers in West Germany and the United States in the post-WWI period. It argues that the ultimate locus of decision rests with federal administrators, not interest groups or legislators, and this has implications for citizenship, how we think about policy-making and the role of administration in modern social life.
