Abstract : This is a disturbing book to read, and therefore one which should be closely examined by all who are interested in educational administration, in PPBS and systems analysis, and in the uses of knowledge for better decisionmaking. Reading of this book is sure to dispel any optimism that educational administration has passed the stage of superficial manuals, that the potentials and weaknesses of systems analysis and PPBS have been adequately explored, and that modern organization theory is sufficiently known to prevent naivety on directed change of organizational behavior.
