"Every year more than half a million people around the world have a hip replaced. It is one of the most successful of modern operations. This book records the experiences of fourteen such patients. They talk about their troubles with their old hips, the process of deciding to replace them and of finding surgeons and hospitals, and the preparations for the operation. We learn about their experiences in hospital before and after the operation. Richard Trahair - an author and psychologist who has himself recently had a hip replacement - weaves together their hopes and concerns with advice from surgeons, rheumatologists, physiotherapists, nurses, and occupational therapists." "All about Hip Replacement will equip those thinking about having the operation with the information they need to make sensible decisions, and will help recent patients to make a full recovery."--Jacket

Behavior, technology, and organizational development : Eric Trist and the Tavistock Institute by R. C. S Trahair( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eric Trist was a psychologist, social scientist, and a leading figure in the field of organizational development. He was a founding member of the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations in London and spent many years in United States academia. This book delves into Trist's life to examine the evolution of his work and how he applied social science theory, knowledge, and methods to the organization of working life and its management. Richard Trahair outlines Trist's socio-technical theory of organization and how it applies to the turbulent environment that modern managers face. Trahair begins with Trist's educational career in England and his attitude toward American and English education. He also describes Trist's work to improve the United Kingdom's Army's method of selecting men for officer training in wartime, and his role in the establishment of the Civil Resettlement Units in England. In place of the traditional technology-driven bureaucracy of industry, Trist recommended that social science researchers help reorganize industries on socio-technical lines. Trist provided convincing evidence that organizations dominated by traditional attitudes were inefficient and unsatisfactory. He made it clear that seeing workers as little more than costly extensions of machines and the industrial environment as nothing but a set of competitive market forces seriously limited potential for growth
Elton Mayo : the humanist temper by R. C. S Trahair( Book )

14 editions published between 1984 and 2017 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The definitive biography of the life and work of Elton Mayo (1880-1949) is the first full, accurate account of the activities and intimate life of one of Australia and America's pioneering social scientists. Mayo, who established the scientific study of organizational behavior, was highly influential in American social science and business management theory, following his work at the Harvard Business School and the Western Electric Company. Still the subject of vigorous debate, Mayo's ideas spanned several disciplines - psychology, sociology, philosophy, and business management. Mayo developed the field of industrial psychology by applying the results of scientific research to the problems of work in order to improve the life of industrial workers and managers and to encourage collaboration between administrators and their subordinates. Richard C.S. Trahair's biography traces the origins of Mayo's ideas in order to help clarify aspects of the debate
