About the book
A total of nine chapters provide a lively and exciting insight into 150 years of the company’s history. The structure does not follow the chronology of events strictly – instead, the development of the company is examined from different perspectives. As a result, readers are moving one step closer to the company and the people behind Continental – the ‘Continentals.’ The book’s informal and entertaining approach is aimed at Continental employees and the general public alike. It was written by Prof. Paul Erker, Professor at LMU Munich for Modern and Contemporary History with a focus on economic and corporate history, and Dr. Nils Fehlhaber, head of Continental’s Group Archive. It will be published in German and English in September 2021.
