Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(3), 269. Warren Bennis responds to L. Lance Shotland's (see record 2006-06576-105) and Carolyn Wood Sherif's (see record 2006-06576-106) responses to Bennis' reply (see record 2006-06403-051) to comments by Shotland (see record 2006-06403-049) and Sherif (see record 2006-06403-050) on Bennis' review (see record 2006-06395-048) of Shotland's book, University Communication Networks: The Small World Method (1976). Bennis states that his review really was highly critical and harsh, since, in his opinion, the book failed to advance our knowledge, either methodologically or theoretically. But charging the reviewer with ad hominemism because he was critical in this way is sad. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
