Abstract : Previous study on social physics for the man-sciences is continued. In the first part, a number of essays are presented which further develop a theory of organization. Next, specific applied questions of importance to the Army are tackled. It is hoped that a real new paradigm, one drawn from the physics of organization, is recognized as being developed for application to real man-systems problems. (Modified author abstract)
