Reviews

"The wealth of new materials, the comparative framework, the implications for the East-West struggle for power, the very great lucidity with which Bendix writes about complex materials, and not least, the detached, highly scholarly attitude he brings to his work, combine to make this into a sociological research of the first rank."

--American Sociological Review

"The book is truly global in its approach. It seeks to explain the rationalizations and justifications used in the subordination of employees in work organizations not only in the United States but also in England, Russia, and East Germany."
