Summary

This book argues that the "authoritarian" depiction of Frederick Taylor trivializes his important contribution. Schachter's analysis of Taylor's work shows that he actually originated many of the human relations insights that the literature attributes to Mayo, Maslow, and McGregor.

Introduced are two major arguments. Through an examination of Taylor's work, a new way of understanding his actual approach to management is opened. Also discussed are the political and historical reasons that led to the distortion of his work.

"The author makes a strong case that Frederick Taylor has been misrepresented completely in the Public Administration literature for the past 40 years. Further, she argues that this case reveals serious shortcomings in the way the field of public administration builds and communicates knowledge. It is bold and interesting." -- Peter W. Colby, University of Central Florida

Hindy Lauer Schachter is Professor of Social Sciences at New Jersey Institute of Technology. She is author of Public Agency Communications and articles in Public Administration Review and Administration and Society, among other journals.
