"Since coming to America more than a half-century ago, Peter Drucker has been high among our creative thinkers, producing a whole bookshelf on management and society, the past and the future. Here is an opportunity to read a cogent selection of his works, picked by the man himself, that shows not only individual insights but an integrated and engaging Weltanschauung."
—Robert L. Bartley, Wall Street Journal
Though he may be best known as a writer on business and management, Drucker’s primary intellectual concern has been community, in which the individual has status, and society, in which the individual has function. This book presents the full range of Drucker’s thought on community, society, and political structure, and constitutes an ideal introduction to his ideas.
