Abstract:

"Antony Jay has provided a unifying thesis for the study of the working of great corporations. He demonstrates, by example after example, that corporations, for all their superficial differences, are in fact states - some feudal, some Tudor, some like eighteenth-century Spain and some like Renaissance Italy; that they have barons and courtiers, orthodox religion, and dissenting nonconformism ... The reader ... is never conscious that he is reading an important book with an overriding thesis; the author's vivid, lighthearted style and epigrammatic wit carry him along so easily and enjoyably that the impression is of good fun and sound common sense and historical observation"--Page 4 of cover.
