Overview

This collection of Peter F. Drucker's essays explores the intersection between society, politics, and economics. Despite this lofty goal, however, the essays themselves remain down to earth, highly readable, and full of stories and ideas that make us think differently about the business world around us.

The majority of these essays were written in the 1960s, and in them Drucker specifically examines that turbulent decade, yielding conclusions that are as timeless as they are fresh. He places the merger mania of the decade in the context of business history of the twentieth century, and arrives at fundamental questions about mass market economies. He questions the personal and political values of 1960s adolescents, and ends up relating them to the concurrent rise of big complex modern institutions. He examines with equal vigor Japan's management successes, the role of politics and economics in American identity, and the "real" Kirkegaard.
