Formal organizations: a comparative approach by Peter Michael Blau ( Book )
66 editions published between 1962 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 1,433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Upon its publication in 1962, this book became one of the founding texts of organizational sociology. Bringing together diverse approaches, it presented a new focus of interest: the formal organization. Blau and Scott raised the level of analysis from attention solely on individual participants and work groups to a broader understanding of organizations as collective actors. In the book, the authors reviewed multiple types of studies--including case studies, experimental research, and surveys--and integrated them to define new central themes. They used their own empirical studies of two social welfare agencies to illustrate the ways in which varying organizational contexts shape work group and participant attitudes and activities. The book served to integrate research on both formal and informal systems, authority and leadership, and stressed the importance of links to the wider environment. This reissue, which includes a new introduction by Scott, makes this seminal work accessible to a new generation of scholars and practitioners.--From publisher description

This collection offers data on social structure and social conditions in SMSAs of the United States and examines how these conditions influence cultural development. In addition to presenting a broad range of census data aggregated at the SMSA level, the collection also provides detailed variables on metropolitan art institutions and funding for those institutions. Structural variables, which are supplied for both 1970 and 1980, include detailed items on marital status, occupation, ethnicity, language, education, age, race, and income. Art variables for each SMSA include total number of artists, art museums, galleries, dance companies, theaters, orchestras, motion picture theaters, concerts, and radio station formats. Many of the art categories are broken down further into detailed specialties. For example, in addition to the variable that tabulates total number of artists in each SMSA, there are separate variables for the number of actors, authors, dancers, designers, musicians and composers, painters and sculptors, and photographers. Similarly, information is presented on many different types of galleries, such as galleries specializing in paintings, graphic arts, furniture, oriental art, porcelain, antiquities, etc. Information is also provided in this collection on arts participation and attendance....
