Synopsis

"The Biographical Dictionary of Management" explores the nature and historical development of management as both a commercial concept and a social force, examining how the study of the people can tell us more about their ideas. Over 600 entries, including both management professionals and academics, cover the whole evolution of management, from the time of the first managed institutions to the present. All the major schools and trends are represented. The dictionary covers all the major fields of activity and includes many subjects who are still highly active in their fields. Every figure represented has made a significant contribution either in thought or in practice. Also included are figures from whom management practitioners and academics have drawn inspiration, including economists, sociologists, historians, psychologists, political scientists and philosophers. The dictionary is global in approach, including subjects from countries including the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Japan, China, Korea, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Czechoslovakia, India and Brazil. This fascinating volume explores in detail the nature and evolution of this dynamic subject.

It includes biographical details for each figure covered, together with analysis of the subject's work, writings ideas and contribution to the history of management. Available for the first time in paperback, this indispensable two-volume encyclopaedia is a must for anyone with an interest in the figures who have shaped the history of management.

Morgen Witzel is a historian of management and writer on business.
