INTRODUCTION We start this book with Theme A (see Figure P. I in the Preface), which aims to develop an essential and fundamental understanding of systems science. So, what is systems science? When asked to explain what systems science is all about, many systems scientists are confronted with a rather daunting task. The discipline tends to be presented and understood in a fragmented way and very few people hold an overview understanding of the subject matter, while also having sufficient in-depth competence in many and broad-ranging subject areas where the ideas are used. Indeed, it was precisely this difficulty that identified the need for a comprehensive well-documented account such as is presented here in Dealing with Complexity.

From the Back Cover: The First Edition of Dealing with Complexity has gratified us tremendously by its sales and adoption in many courses throughout the English-speaking world. The aim of producing this Second Edition is to develop a volume to be established firmly as the introduction to systems science that will take us into the next millennium. A number of significant changes have been made in updating the book to take into account the following; new developments in systems thinking, our experience of using the text to teach hundreds of undergraduate and masters students, feedback from business and management, and some suggestions from book reviews.
