Hindy Laurer Schachter, Frederick Taylor and the Public Administration Community: A Reevaluation

DiPrete, Thomas A.

Schachter's book has some shortcomings. She leaves the misleading impression that social science's evaluation of the human relations movement has not progressed since the 1950's. Because she focuses exclusively on the public administration literature, she does not trace the more general development of the the theory of worker motivation in the scientific management community.
