Book Description

This book, first published in 1958, concerns American industry and commerce, and is devoted to what people do while they are working and reasons for their behaviour. This volume should prove valuable as an attempt to make systematic sense out of work in our industrial world. The balance of fact and theory is useful to those interested in understanding this complex world of working behaviour, and will be of interest to students of human resource management.
