    "Organizing America is a magisterial work: a compelling analysis showing why those who study states and economies should take organizations seriously and those studying organizations should ponder how organizations have concentrated wealth and power. Perrow takes the study of organizations back to Weber's original vision, problematizing the question of why and how Western society has been transformed from community and individual to hierarchy and bureaucracy."--William G. Roy, University of California, Los Angeles"This book represents a long-awaited, sweeping statement by one of the leading organizational theorists of our time. Given the power, force, and even audacity of the author's arguments, it is certain to be much discussed and hotly debated."--Mark S. Mizruchi, University of Michigan"Charles Perrow sets his sights on those who contend that American firms became behemoths because big firms are more efficient than small ones. Organizing America offers a compelling alternative account, in which managers and owners created huge corporations in the process of striving for power rather than efficiency."--Frank Dobbin, Princeton University
