Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 888. Reviews the book, Developments in Management Thought by Harold R. Pollard (1978). For those who are cramming for exams or have little time to read, Pollard has put together a useful book. His own goal in assembling this book is to make the literature on management manageable. He hopes to aid the reader in understanding the development of management thought by providing a background of management theory. In actuality, the book is more or less a cram course for students attempting to familiarize themselves with key writers in the field of management. One of the criticisms of this book is that the presentations are too short and too superficial. As a result, there is a certain sterility to the presentations. Nonetheless, Pollard's book will probably do well. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
