KIRKUS REVIEW

The editor of this unusually constructive and provocative volume is on the staff of the School of Business and Public Administration at Cornell. In selecting material for inclusion he has deliberately chosen to organize his book around major problems in human relations from primarily a managerial point of view, secondarily an academic one. Leadership, labor-management relations training, supervision, organization overall, and research are all represented, and each contribution -- while linked to the central theme- is a unit in itself. The and result is a practical working program which the individual reader (in the main those actively concerned in the subject) can develop from the data pertinent to his problem. Business men, professional men and teachers combine to present the important phases of human relationships,- as man to man, man to a group, men to men; it goes beyond theory to practical approach to recurrent difficulties in every phase of business and professional life. Sound examples of correct and incorrect procedure are given. From student in the field to management itself should find this of value, though at times it seems over-optimistic and idealistic. Virtually a new book, though the of the text appeared in the original volume in 1947.
