Ackermann, Robert John
In this work a known philosopher offers an analysis of the hidden assumptions that lie at the heart of contemporary social ideology. Robert John Ackermann argues that all social life is intrinsically heterogeneous and that such homogeneous constructs as race, gender, class, nation and state are necessarily artificial. In the course of his inquiry, he discusses what we mean when we invoke these terms and explores the intellectual implications and concrete consequences of their everyday use. Although Ackermann's approach is philosophical, his arguments are grounded in his personal experience - from encounters with the subtle workings of racism and sexism to active participation in local government. He urges his readers to draw on their own experiences to test the validity of his conclusions. In his view, only by breaking down the traditional distinction between private perception and public authority, "subjective" and "objective" knowledge, can the insights of philosophy prove useful in promoting meaningful social change. In a final chapter, Ackermann stresses the need to combine social theory with political practice. 218pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Corners bumped.

Edited By Halachmi, Arie and Bouckaert, Geert
This volume deals with concepts relating to public productivity through quality and strategic management. It is suggested that quality is not a simple or single concept: it can mean compliance with pre-determined specifications of processes or outputs; it can mean assessment of outcomes or gatekeeping - in other words, assuring the quality of the inputs. There are obvious parallels with measuring productivity - if you cannot get good handles on outputs, then use inputs. This problem of the simple becoming complicated was understood by the Japanese at the inception of their "productivity movement". Having carefully analyzed how Europe had adopted and adapted American productivity techniques and approaches, and being faced with a turbulent system of industrial relations and a poor quality image, the initiators of the Japanese productivity movement came to the conclusion that, at least, a cease-fire and, at best, a treaty had to be negotiated between organized labour, management and government. The resulting 1955 productivity principles are addressed in this book. 271pp.
