Queen Victoria's Baggage is a cross-disciplinary examination of why the organizational life experienced by millions of people in western culture is fraught with dysfunctionality and pain. To avoid a loss of perspective by focusing on the present cultural milieu the book utilizes anthropology, psychology, history and the study of technology and applies them to those who established the foundations for today's institutions during the reign of Queen Victoria from 1830-1901. The author uncovers the discontent found in current organizations in the nineteenth century cultures of America, Russia, and Vienna, the ancestral social roots that continue to disrupt the foundations of lives within organizations and analyzes both the depth and breadth of the remedial actions which need to be undertaken to undo what has been evolving for 150 years.
