If p is an odd prime, G a finite group and P a Sylow-p-subgroup of G, a theorem of Glauberman and Thompson states that G is p-nilpotent if and only if NG(Z(J(P))) is p-nilpotent, where J(P) is the Thompson subgroup of P generated by all abelian subgroups of P of maximal order. Following a suggestion of G. R. Robinson, we prove a block-theoretic analogue of this theorem.
