Antony Jay is known through programmes like "Yes Minister" for his perceptive and amusing analysis of organizations and the behaviour of people who work in them.

With the application of Machiavellian precepts to modern corporations like IBM, General Motors and Shell Oil, he discovers that underneath the corporate images lurk self-contained states, complete with courtiers and diplomats, orthodoxy and heresy, wars and peace treaties.
