In the last hundred years of industrial advancement, a great deal of scientific progress has been made in the field of efficiency studies. Known as human resources management among those who study these things, the main quest has always been how to control human thoughts and actions so that everything works to the maximum benefit of those who control these human resources. Accordingly, the most "efficient" system is one that controls the human resources by eliminating the human part and turning them into pure resources. In other words, their ultimate organizational goal is to transform people into things. This is the quest of all efficiency experts and human resources managers and what is commonly called organizational behavior. This book is about the two best historical examples of such "efficiently-run" resource management.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...Frightening. -- Timothy Flack, formerly of Stars & Stripes
In so much as people are relegated to numbers either for a specific purpose or no purpose at all, they are dehumanized. And while the method used to dehumanize people may or may not lend itself to judicial processes, political and such, the fact remains that in such circumstances, consumers are being thought of and used in a way that does not consider their ability to perceive humanity....To my astonishment, I was swayed to agree with the author. -- Alfonso Davis
Stunning, provocative, wonderfully appropriate in [its] aptly compressed expression of the central, radical, profoundly original, and brilliant themes developed.... Will stand the test of time as magisterial monuments of the sociological imagination. -- Richard Dowling, American History and English Teacher, University of Maryland University College
