ABSTRACT
The study describes common directorships and financial participations among the largest 325 German and 2S9 Austrian corporations in 1976. Several approaches to explaining the overlap among boards of directors are discussed. Whatever their causes may be, interlocks can be considered as potential channels for communication. Global and local properties of this diffusion network are analyzed and regions of different degrees of centrality distinguished. Differentiating among interlocks according to their multiplicity and to the type of directorship involved makes it possible to discern groupings of enterprises and domains of large financial institutions. The distribution of various categories of owners over the regions of centrality and the association between interlocks and financial participations indicate the important effect of ownership relations on the structure of common directorships. Finally, sectoral and regional aspects of the network of interlocking directorates are studied.
