Modern Problems and Practices of Management as Revealed in Selected Contemporary American Novels

Modern Problems and Practices of Management as Revealed in Selected Contemporary American Novels

Date: May 1972
Creator: Ashley, Janelle Coleman 1941-
Description: This study is an examination of the hypothesis that selected contemporary American novels offer vivid illustrations of modern problems and practices of management as seen in business and industry. Too often, university management courses treat management processes as isolated cases in limited and static settings. Novelists, on the other hand, treat these same processes in a broader context and often deal quite subtly and perceptively with everything from the mammoth corporation to the single proprietorship. Students proposing to become businessmen, therefore, should benefit from this novelistic perspective so frequently overlooked.
