Wiley, 1984 - Psychology - 335 pages
This bold study examines how groups work--their growth, rule, conventions, activity, absenteeism, and conflict--using a real-life event as a model to explain why some groups succeed and others fail. The book develops new principles for analyzing human behavior in groups and a methodology that differentiates among natural, social and political science in terms of truth, verification and appropriate technology.
