The making of modern management : British management in historical perspective by J. F Wilson( Book )

"The term management is commonly used in three ways: as a process or activity; as a structure in any organization; and as a group or class of people carrying out certain roles in an organization. This book is the first detailed account of the evolution of management in all three senses. The focus is mainly on the UK, but throughout the broader question of why corporate management structures developed so impressively in the USA, Germany, and Japan, while arguably little progress was made in this regards in the UK, is present."--Jacket

Lyndall Urwick, management pioneer : a biography by E. F. L Brech( Book )
9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 105 libraries worldwide
"Lyndall Urwick was the dominant figure in British management between the late 1920s and the early 1960s. His writings and his passion in pursuit of management as a scientific and systematic activity, rather than the rule-of-thumb approach to decision-making all too prevalent in Britain, exercised a huge influence on management at the time, and ultimately management as we know it today. Urwick was greatly affected by his experience of the First World War and at Rowntree's. He went on to become Director of the International Management Institute between 1928-33, before forming a very influential management consultancy, Urwick Orr and Partners, which he chaired for the rest of his career. He was also deeply involved with almost all the institutional developments in British management up to the 1960s, including the Management Research Groups, the Institute of Industrial Administration, the British Institute of Management, the Administrative Staff College, and the management education side of the Anglo-American Council on Productivity. In pursuit of what he called his `mission at large', he gave hundreds of talks in his lucid and charismatic style, many of which were published as articles or booklets. These talks were not only in Britain but in Australia after his emigration there in 1961, in America, where he became the best-recognized foreign exponent of management, and in a range of countries around the world. But he will probably be best remembered for his writings, not only on organization theory, where he is recognized as a great synthesizer and leader in the classical school, but on a wide range of other topics, including the history of management, leadership, marketing, and management education and development. Truly he was a man of many parts--Book Jacket

The clergy of Winchester, England, 1615-1698 : a diocesan ministry in crisis by A. W. J Thomson( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 19 libraries worldwide
This book attempts to assess the ministry of the Church in Winchester - a premier diocese - in the seventh century - a time of outstanding upheaval - as it underwent the awesome challenges of Archbishop Laud's Arminianism, abolition during the wars and emergence after the Restorations into an age of Toleration. The focus is the parish. While the hierarchy was immersed in national policy, the parish clergy were the front line - the interface - between Church and people. They performed the essential rites of passage in the communities, from baptisms to communion - and with the churchwardens, over
