30th ANNIVERSARY EDITION! "Truly a classic reborn. What a pleasure to read this great combination of old and newpredictions and valuable insights by Bennis and Slater." -Edward E. Lawler III, author of From the Ground Up"The world has always been more wild than those who don't really read history admit. If[Warren Bennis and Philip Slater] choose to regard the present era as unusually torn bychange, they've got a good point. What's more, they advance cogent ideas on how tolive in a time of tumult..." -The New York TimesIn these six essays-including Democracy Is Inevitable, originally published in the Harvard Business Review-renowned business pundit Warren Bennis and Brandeis sociologist Philip Slater presented a take on the future that struck most of their contemporaries as being too far-fetched. But in the years since, their predictions have materialized with uncanny accuracyand Bennis has gone on to become one of today's most widely respected business thinkers.Now, in this thirtieth anniversary edition of their seminal work, Bennis and Slater team up again to reflect on the events of the last three decades and to look forward to the changes ahead. Featuring a new preface by the authors and contemporary introductions to each chapter, The Temporary Society is as relevant as ever, with fresh predictions for the networked organizations and flattened hierarchies of the future.A welcome antidote to the hype surrounding new movements and business fads, the classic book that prophetically heralded the current state of our world-newly revised and updated-contains much-needed wisdom for the century to come.
