The social psychology of organizations by Daniel Katz ( Book )
23 editions published between 1966 and 1987 in English and held by 2,358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"We believe that it is possible to meet the requirements of scientific validity and conceptual adequacy within the bounds of the experimental tradition. The development of experimental work in social psychology has progressed to a stage wherein a fairly complete treatment of the entire subject matter can now be given in the light of experimentally derived knowledge. In other words, where actual experiments remain yet to be performed, the problems can even now be envisaged in terms of experimentally established facts. Specifically, the plan of organization to be followed in this book attempts an adequate, vital approach by introducing materials and problems from the point of view of different participants in the social scene. The social world as it appears to the man on the street, social phenomena as seen through the eyes of the clinician or psychiatrist, and the social drama as viewed by the social engineer or planner all provide points of departure for our study. A unity in these descriptions derives from a continuing emphasis upon naturalistic and scientific interpretation. A whole section (Part II), moreover, is devoted to a detailed analysis of the mechanisms and mainsprings of action, the motives of men, and the processes of social interaction as revealed in experimental findings. Part I is descriptive and sociological, Part II is analytical and experimental, Part III is genetic and developmental, Part IV historical and dialectical. It is hoped that the instructor will find this treatment a broad exposition which includes many phases of the behavior of the individual as he encounters the social world of his fellows. The gearing of this account to the problems of everyday life increases its vitality to the student"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

Age and structural lag : society's failure to provide meaningful opportunities in work, family, and leisure ( Book )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In twentieth-century industrial societies most of us live longer and healthier lives than ever before in history. Yet the social structures and institutions that provide opportunities for our lives are still marked by age constraints that were appropriate a century ago. Education is still primarily reserved for the young; work and family responsibilities are crowded into the middle years; while leisure and free time are allocated to the added decades of retirement. Even the many vital men and women past age 65, or even 55, who want or need paid jobs are regarded as "too old" to work. Lives have changed, but social structures have not caught up. There is a lag or mismatch between lives and structures. What are the detrimental consequences of this structural lag for individuals and society at large? How do structures change, and how can they be changed to enhance lives at every age? What alternative structures would lessen the burdens of middle age, prepare children for the complexities of the real world, and provide opportunities for productivity, independence, and esteem for older people? Seeking answers to such questions, the twelve chapters in this book bring powerful insights to bear on structural lag from sociology and psychology; and they draw upon history, anthropology, and economics to disclose new perspectives on the past and the present, and new hope for the future. While special attention is paid to structures affecting the old, issues relating to all ages are explored in respect to work, family, education, retirement, and other domains of social life. This is a powerful book, revolutionary in its conceptions and implications, calling for structural changes in society; a new mix of work, family, and leisure. Opening a critical but neglected area, it is the first book publication of a long-range Program on Age and Structural Change (PASC) directed by Matilda White Riley at the National Institute on Aging and involving an international network of scholars. Timely, authoritative, and the only book to offer a comprehensive treatment of this increasingly important social problem, Age and Structural Lag is a valuable resource for psychologists, sociologists, and those interested in human development and aging; for those in professional practice and in policy, both public and private; and for sophisticated readers concerned with major issues of everyday life
