First published in 1964, WRITERS ON ORGANIZATIONS collects some of the essential writings on organization theory from the twentieth century. Authors discussed include Max Weber, Alvin W. Gouldner, C. Northcote Parkinson, Laurence J. Peter, Peter F. Drucker, Frederick Herzberg and William H. Whyte. While earlier editions of this text might seem out of date, in the sense that they do not acknowledge the all-pervasive influence of technology organizations, the book as a whole addresses fundamental questions, such as the relationship of the individual to the institution, the definition of 'progress' and how to achieve it, the importance of feedback and collective decision-making, and what leaders should do so as to obtain maximum efficiency from those working under them. The book is a valuable introduction to western thinking on organizations; the type of ideas accepted as standard now, but considered revolutionary in their time.
