Summary "This study explores the operation of the Treuhandanstalt, the trust agency responsible for implementing the massive privatisation programme launched in the former East Germany in 1990. Created as a final attempt to reform and modernise the East German economy, the agency was at one time the largest holding company in the world. This book evaluates the level of satisfaction that stakeholder groups typically felt with regard to the agency, its actions and its achievements. It will be fascinating reading for academics, policy makers and practitioners interested in the stakeholder models of organisational effectiveness."--Jacket
