Bibliography



The materials included here
represent a useful sample of the available literature related to the content of
the book and more generally to the various areas covered in the text. Many
other people have significantly added to my thinking and understanding of human
services agencies, organizations, the human factors associated with agency
Management, and to the incorporating environment within which human services
agencies develop and function. The readings included here reflect the range and
flavor of that insight and research. I appreciate the contributions the various
scholars and practitioners have made to this field of study and to my
professional development and growth. I hope you find their work equally useful
and challenging.
