About the Author

Amitai Etzioni is Professor of Sociology at Columbia University and Director of the Center for Policy Research. His other books include Political Unification and The Active Society: A Theory of Societal and Political Processes.


American Sociological Review This is an important book...It classifies organizations on the basis of organizational properties and systematically examines variations among different types of organization...The scope of Etizioni's approach include a wide variety of organizations, from religious societies to concentration camps...valuable reading for all students of organization. The Annals American Academy of Political and Social Science ...a challenging and fresh approach to an important area which has, in general, leaned too closely and too heavily for too long a time on the giant contributions of Max Weber. American Political Science Review ...the analysis of Charisma, and the critique of Weber's well-known discussion of this phenomenon, are among the best things in the book. Personnel Psychology Etzioni breaks into new territory...Perhaps now the ideas planted so long ago by Barnard and Simon will receive the nurture which they so deserve...a contribution of significance.
