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.

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.
