Complex Organizations: A Critical Essay. Glenview, IL : Scott, Foresman and Company , 1979


Scott, Foresman and Company

From the Preface: “Many conceits go into the writing of books, and one of those found in textbooks is the hope that the effort will reward both the student and the specialist. I have such a hope. I have sought a casual style and a critical posture in order to hold the attention of the student and convince him of the importance and intrinsic interest of the subject matter. At the same time, I have attempted to provoke my fellow theorists to follow me through a discussion of the most critical problem our field faces – choosing from competing views about the nature of large, complex organizations.”
