Opis produktu

Peter F. Drucker may be best known as a writer on business and management but these subjects were not his foremost intellectual concern. Druckers primary concerns were community in which the individual has status and society in which the individual has function. Here he has assembled selections from his vast writings on these subjects. This collection presents the full range of Druckers thought on community society and political structure and constitutes an ideal introduction to his ideas.The volume is divided into seven parts. The selections in parts 1 and 2 were mostly written during World War Two and in the wake of the Great Depression. Part 3 deals with the limits of governmental competence in the social and economic realm. It contains some of Druckers most influential writings concerned with the difference between big government and effective government. The chapters in part 4 explore autonomous centers of power outside government and within society. Part 5 contains chapters from Druckers pathbreaking work on the corporation as a social organization rather than merely an economic one. The rise of the socalled knowledge industries forms the background for part 6. The concluding part 7 is devoted entirely to Druckers long essay The Next Society. Drucker examines the emergence of new institutions and new theories arising from the information revolution and the social changes they are helping to bring about.In organizing these representative writings Drucker chose to be topical rather than chronological with each excerpt presenting a basic theme of his lifes work. As is characteristic of his efforts A Functioning Society appeals both the general reader as well as a crossdisciplinary scholarly readership.Introduction: Community Society PolityPart 1: Foundations1.
