Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 923–924. Reviews the book, Matrix by Stanley M. Davis, Paul R. Lawrence, Harvey Kolodny, and Michael Beer (1977). This book is an ideal introduction to matrix for administrators. It is also helpful for the student who has mastered the contingent theoretical propositions regarding alternative organization structures, but lacks a clinical understanding of the dynamics and atmosphere of matrix. It is a refreshing excursion into the atmosphere of matrix for old hands and scholars. The only serious disappointment is the lameness of public organization examples. It is gloriously rich in the vicarious experience of the daily dynamics within this subtle, paradoxical organizational form. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
