In 2006, Georg Heinrich Thyssen, together with the ThyssenKrupp Group, established the Thyssen Industrial History Foundation. During its formulation, the foundation made available archival material across the Thyssen-Bornemisza family, ThyssenKrupp AG, and other industrial historical sources to researchers. This volume offers a wide-ranging account of the Thyssens during the twentieth and late-nineteenth centuries. It explains the development of the company and the family whilst addressing issues such as patriarchal succession; gender roles in the family; wealthy lifestyles in international communities of aristocrats and diplomats; operating across national legislation, institutions, and policies; and discussions of labor and capital. In doing so it connects corporate and family history to provide an all-inclusive view of the development of a business.
