Technocracy at Work
SUNY Press - Всего страниц: 243
Technocracy, loosely defined, is rule by experts. Technocracy at Work focuses on the organizational dimensions and aspects of technocracy.
Substantial sociological literatures have analyzed contemporary changes in factories, bureaucracies, and professional organizations. What has not been well investigated is the interrelatedness of these changes and the emergence of technocracy in the workplace. This book fills this gap and analyzes the social and political implications of technocracy, in both particular work organizations as well as the world-wide technocratic system, so as to inform future democratic debate.
