The communitarian persuasion by Philip Selznick( Book )

11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Communitarian Persuasion is a brief, thoughtful, readable argument for communitarian political philosophy by one of the principal thinkers of the movement." "The communitarian movement aims to balance the individual liberties prized by modernity with the health of the community in which those liberties are exercised. The movement arose in 1980s America - a society asserting, on the left, personal self-realization, and, on the right, unrestrained capitalism and distrust of government, both sides assailing social institutions." "Philip Selznick's new book shows how the communitarian response to such pressures is not opposition but integration."--Jacket
A humanist science : values and ideals in social inquiry by Philip Selznick( Book )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and French and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Humanist Science insightfully brings to light the value-centered nature of the social sciences. The work clearly challenges the supposed separation of fact and value, and argues that human values belong to the world of fact and are the source of the ideals that govern social and political institutions. By demonstrating the close connection between the social sciences, and the humanities, Selznick reveals how the methods of the social sciences highlight and enrich the study of such values as well-being, prosperity, rationality, and self-government." "The book moves from the animating principles that make up the humanist tradition to the values that are central to the social sciences, analyzing the core teachings of these disciplines with respect to the moral issues at stake. Throughout the work, Selznick calls attention to the conditions that affect the emergence, realization, and decline of human values, offering a valuable resource for scholars and students of law, sociology, political science, and philosophy."--BOOK JACKET

The anatomy of Nazism by Earl Raab( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is a real danger that what we have learned will not be effectively communicated, especially to young people. This pamphlet will help meet the need for educational materials that spell out the meaning of totalitarianism. While it concentrates on Nazism, it calls attention to the general totalitarian features of that movement and regime. Thus, guides are offered toward a better understanding of what lies behind today's headlines."--Preface
The organizational weapon by Philip Selznick( Book )

9 editions published between 1954 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The Organizational Weapon' is a classic study of the methods, propaganda, and institutions which create infiltration and eventually cooptation of organizations from within. The study applies its theory to communist techniques but its analysis and insights have, over the years, become extremely useful in perceiving and combating such methods in jihadist cells, terrorist organizations, and political groups of many varieties, not only from the Left. Its continuing relevance and utility have been exemplified in how it has influenced, and been cited by, many current writers on how extremist and politically astute groups recruit and infiltrate more benign organizations and make them tools of further expansion of power and action. The book is also considered excellent social science and history, analyzing an important moment in U.S. history when trade organizations, community groups, and the like became affected by Russian encroachment and Marxist influence. Its insights, from one of the country's most recognized social scientists, have stood the test of time.The new digital reprint edition from Quid Pro Books features an extensive and substantive 2014 Foreword by Martin Krygier, a senior professor of law and social theory at the law school of University of New South Wales, in Australia, and also adjunct professor at Australian National University
Institutions and ideals : Philip Selznick's legacy for organizational studies by Matthew S Kraatz( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each of the papers in this volume revisits Selznick's early work, rearticulates some part of his larger perspective, or says somehting about it's originality and historical significance. They also bring Selznick's perspective to bear on more contemporary issues, apply it to new problems, and explain why it still "matters" in the here and now. Though his work is an important part of our shared past as organizational scholars, it's also highly relevant to our collective present and future and provides some indication of what that future could look like
