A Photographic Celebration of the Life and Work of the Legendary Peter Drucker Born on November 19, 1909, Peter Drucker grew up in Austria and moved to Germany at the age of seventeen. When the Nazis rose to power in 1933, they burned and banned some of Drucker's earliest writings, and he fled the country. As Drucker witnessed the institutions of his nation fall apart one by one, he concluded that "performing responsible management is the alternative to tyranny." In 1937, Drucker and his wife immigrated to the United States--and the practice of management has never been the same. Drucker: A Life in Pictures celebrates the life and work of "the man who invented management," as Drucker was known. He was a prolific writer, a passionate teacher, and a brilliant adviser who influenced how organizations are run perhaps more than any single figure of the twentieth century. Drucker was also a loving husband and father, a loyal friend, and a passionate baseball fan. Drawn from the Drucker Archives, a part of the Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University, this trove of photos captures Drucker in all facets of his life--as an immigrant fleeing Hitler's Germany, a bestselling author, a beloved professor, and a consultant to major corporations, nonprofits, and government agencies. The images include Drucker's doctoral dissertation on international law; a handwritten note from General Electric's Jack Welch; a high honor bestowed upon Drucker by the Emperor of Japan; Drucker's typewriter; his walking stick and record collection; and the file the FBI kept on Drucker--along with other stunning photographs of his manuscripts, awards, personal letters, and other ephemera. The book is framed by extensive captions written by Drucker expert Rick Wartzman, and also includes excerpts of interviews with Drucker himself. All told, this handsome, unique photo history shines a spotlight on the many sides of one of the twentieth century's most influential figures. Drawn from the vast collection at the Drucker Archives, a part of the Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University, Drucker: A Life in Pictures features almost 100 photographs of Peter Drucker's correspondence, manuscripts, awards, personal items, and other ephemera. Much of it has never been seen before by the public. Each picture provides a glimpse into Drucker's long, fascinating, and hugely influential life, with every image placed into context through extensive captions written by Rick Wartzman, the Drucker Institute's executive director. Interlaced through the book are excerpts from various interviews that Drucker gave over the years. Drucker: A Life in Pictures is a fitting tribute to one of the most important minds of the twentieth century.

Most economic theory is based on the assumption that economies grow in a linear fashion. Recessions, depressions and (financial) crises are explained by policy mistakes. However, economic development has historically been uneven, and this state of affairs continues today. This book argues that twentieth century economic theory has marginalized individualism and organizational variety, and puts forward the case for a pluralist approach. This book represents a unique synthesis of business theory and economic theory, which pinpoints the problems with many current mainstream theories and sets out new agendas for research. Here, Maria Brouwer argues that market competition is not about adapting to changes from outside, but is driven by human motivation and goal directed behavior. This gives managerial skills, which do not traditionally have a significant place in mainstream economic theory, a key role. It also highlights the need for organizations that have a motivational culture and appreciate human capital. This differs from the traditional view of the firm as a production function dictated by technology. Brower argues that organizations should be depicted as voluntary associations of people that pursue goals of their own, while firms compete on markets, where relative performance determines their fate. This argument builds on older theories of innovation and market competition that live on in business school curricula, and paints a picture of an economy directed by individuals and firms. This signals a bold departure from standard economic thinking.

The fourteen essays that make up this collection have as their common theme a reconsideration of the role historical and cultural change has played in the evolution of twentieth-century poetry and poetics. Committed to the notion that, in John Ashbery's words, "You can't say it that way anymore," Poetry On & Off the Page describes the formations and transformations of literary and artistic discourses, and traces these discourses as they have evolved in their dialogue with history, culture, and society. The volume is testimony to the important role that contemporary artistic practice will continue to play as we move into the twenty-first century.

In Poetry, Pictures, and Popular Publishing eminent Rossetti scholar LorraineJanzen Kooistra demonstrates the cultural centrality of a neglected artifact:the Victorian illustrated gift book. Turning a critical lens on “drawing-room books” as both material objects and historical events, Kooistra reveals how the gift book’s visual/verbal form mediated “high” and popular art as well as book and periodical publication. A composite text produced by many makers, the poetic gift book was designed for domestic space and a female audience; its mode of publication marks a significant momentin the history of authorship, reading, and publishing. With rigorous attention to the gift book’s aesthetic and ideological features, Kooistra analyzes the contributions of poets, artists, engravers, publishers, and readers and shows how its material form moved poetry into popular culture. Drawing on archival and periodical research, she offers new readings of Eliza Cook, Adelaide Procter, and Jean Ingelow and shows the transatlantic reach of their verses. Boldly re-situating Tennyson’s works within the gift-book economy he dominated, Kooistra demonstrates how the conditions of corporate authorship shaped the production and receptionof the laureate’s verses at the peak of his popularity. Poetry, Pictures, and Popular Publishing changes the map of poetry’s place—in all its senses—in Victorian everydaylife and consumer culture.

Read the Intro Chapter (PDF) View the Ayn Rand Appendix View an interview with author Robert L. Bradley, Jr. at Reason.com Capitalism took the blame for Enron although the company was anything but a free-market enterprise, and company architect was hardly a principled capitalist. On the contrary, Enron was a politically dependent company and, in the end, a grotesque outcome of America's mixed economy. That is the central finding of Robert L. Bradley's "Capitalism at Work": The blame for Enron rests squarely with "political capitalism"--a system in which business firms routinely obtain government intervention to further their own interests at the expense of consumers, taxpayers, and competitors. Although Ken Lay professed allegiance to free markets, he was in fact a consumate politician. Only by manipulating the levers of government was he able to transform Enron from a $3 billion natural gas company to a $100 billion chimera, one that went in a matter of months from seventh place on Fortune's 500 list to bankruptcy. But "Capitalism at Work" goes beyond unmasking Enron's sophisticated foray into political capitalism. Employing the timeless insights of Adam Smith, Samuel Smiles, and Ayn Rand, among others, Bradley shows how fashionable anti-capitalist doctrines set the stage for the ultimate business debacle. Those errant theories, like Enron itself, elevated form over substance, ignored legitimate criticism, and bypassed midcourse correction. Political capitali
