Abstract

This volume marks the end of a research project of the editors titled “The Development of the Personal Distribution of Income in Germany” that was financed by the Hans Böckler Foundation from 1994 to 2001. This research concentrated on a national perspective, studying many aspects of income inequality and poverty in West Germany between 1969 and 1998 and extending the analyses to inequality in East Germany after the German reunification. Now at the end point of our empirical analyses, we want to expand the perspective to other research in this field, to challenges for future research, and to the European dimension, rather than to summarise all our results, which is done in another book1.
