This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about the role of the American business model in the transformation of European business after World War II. It attempts to address the issue about the coexistence of persistent differentiation and increasing similarities among national systems of industrial production. It proposes an account of the evolution on industrial production systems since 1945 that would take into consideration the contradictory trends of convergence and persistent differentiation.

Keywords:   American business model, European business, national systems of industrial production, convergence, persistent differentiation
