About this Item

22 cm, 281 pages, index, some wear, soiling, and small tear/chipping to DJ, former owner's name on front endpaper. Signed by the author. Excerpts from: "KIRKUS REVIEW . Carl B. Kaufmann is concerned with the tools and techniques, the ideas about . labor, of corporate man, with the relationship between the individual and the organization. His premise is that "failing to find purpose in his work, it seems reasonable to conclude, man is not likely to find purpose anywhere else." His assertion that "there never has been a 'leisure society,' and there is no reason to suppose that there ever will be," indicates the tenor . of his approach. He surveys the institutional heritage of work, the role of technology, the ethic of work. and commerce. He . reviews the corporate experience for employer and employee alike, manager and managed, lancing organization man myths along the way. The corporation in society takes up his final concern, and moves him to the assertion that "man incorporate, for all his imperfections and failings, is an uncommonly useful man." . his eyes are wide open, his arguments persuasive.".
