11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Communitarian Persuasion is a brief, thoughtful, readable argument for communitarian political philosophy by one of the principal thinkers of the movement." "The communitarian movement aims to balance the individual liberties prized by modernity with the health of the community in which those liberties are exercised. The movement arose in 1980s America - a society asserting, on the left, personal self-realization, and, on the right, unrestrained capitalism and distrust of government, both sides assailing social institutions." "Philip Selznick's new book shows how the communitarian response to such pressures is not opposition but integration."--Jacket

Institutions and ideals : Philip Selznick's legacy for organizational studies( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philip Selznick is a towering figure in the history of organizational studies. His direct contributions to organizational scholarship are relatively few in number and were mostly produced in the early years of his remarkable academic career. But, these early organizational writings, which include TVA and the Grass Roots (1949) and Leadership in Administration (1957), exerted a profound, multi-faceted, and enduring influence on a then-nascent field . They are also widely viewed as the "founding documents" of institutional theory. Each of the papers in this volume revisits Selznick's early work, rearticulates some part of his larger perspective, and says something about its originality and historical significance. They also bring Selznick's perspective to bear on more contemporary issues, apply it to new problems, and explain why it still "matters" in the here and now. Though Selznick's work is an important part of our shared past as organizational scholars, it's also highly relevant to our collective present and our possible future. Taken together, these chapters provide some indication of what that future could look like
