Descripción del producto

Biografía del autor

Known mostly for her pioneering work in managerial theory, Mary Parker Follett (1868-1933) was also an astute political theorist. In The New State (1918), she wrote a classic work in democratic political theory. Her vision of citizens gathering into neighborhood centers and engaging in civic dialogue continues to inform recent calls to strengthen American democracy from below. Next to John Dewey's The Public and Its Problems(1927), The New State stands as one of the most important political works that grew out of the Progressive Era in American history.

Kevin Mattson is Director of Research at the Walt Whitman Center and author of Creating a Democratic Public: The Struggle for Urban Participatory Democracy During the Progressive Era (Penn State, 1998). --Este texto se refiere a la edición Tapa blanda .

One of the most insightful books ever written. 15 de octubre de 1998

Formato: Tapa dura
Many would say that Mary Parker Follett was ahead of her time. I think that perhaps she was just in time, but the Progressive Era was rudely interrupted by a Depression, a world war, and then a complacent and insular 1950's. Even today, with the themes of this book as fresh as ever, the reader will find her arguments challenging yet undeniable. This book is not just about democracy and politics and community. It is about nothing less than conscious evolution. Follett turns conventional notions of politics and group process upside down, and she has no qualms about redefining terms that we take for granted, in ways that are simply this: empowering. Follett's sometimes poetic expression and passionate articulation, and her common-sense approach, will make this book enjoyable for any reader. And it is backed up by just enough intellectual argument to satisfy the social scientist. I would recommend this book for anyone interested in the issues at the forefront of our public conversation today: community, communication, civic participation, neighborhood, political reform, diversity and equality. It is a landmark for 1998 as much as when it came out eighty years ago, if not more so.
Mary Parker Follett's The New State: A long-lost text for the 99% 20 de abril de 2012

I came to Mary Parker Follett by way of researching early management and organizational theory. As I read more about her and her work, I was struck by the vibrancy of her thinking as it relates to current organization culture studies. Her work laid the groundwork for much of what has become accepted wisdom among management theorists such as Douglas McGregor and Peter Drucker.

But what really struck me in reading The New State was it relevancy to today's Occupy movements. Her analysis of what democracy can and should be, and how to work it, should be required reading for those proposing that the 99% stand up and remake our political landscape.

From nearly a century ago, she provides a practical vision of the tools, processes, and techniques that can be employed to create a more just, representative, and equitable state. It should be required reading for those who wish to make a new beginning in this country, and the world.
