A Company of Citizens: What the Worlds First Democracy Teaches Leaders About Creating Great Organizations by Brook Manville, Josiah Ober

Insight on self-governing organizations from a study of Ancient Athens, the worlds first democracy.Fun, intelligent, and provocative analysis of how and why the self-governing organization worksFascinating stories of ancient Athenian democracy that will help readers envision a democratic model of organizations. Unlike many history-applied-to-business books, A Company of Citizens is based on a deep understanding and rigorous study of ancient Athens by Ober, a professor of classics at Princeton University, and Manville, a knowledge management expert and a trained historian. Although theres a strong interest in books that draw managerial lessons from history or historic figures, no such books address organizational development issues. Brings fresh voices and a fresh perspective to the organizational theory literature. The books message is transformative, offering a new basis for approaching organizational development, organizational leadership, and knowledge management programs. Written in a clear, engaging, and accessible style
