-Jim Collins, author of Good to Greatand How the Mighty Fall

-Wendy Kopp, CEO and founder of Teach for America

"Rick Wartzman has performed a great service in pulling together TheDrucker Lectures. The collection is as far-ranging as Drucker's thinkingandwriting. If you have sampled Drucker before, you will find things youhaven'tseen. Peter's ideas live on. You will be energized by reading themanew."
-Paul O'Neill, former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury

"Peter Drucker inspires awe. From the 1940s until his death a few yearsago, he displayed a combination of insight, prescience, and productivitythat few will ever match. This superbly edited collection captures boththerange of Drucker's thinking and the sweep of history that informed it.TheDrucker Lectures is a riveting read that reveals the depth and subtletyofone of America's most remarkable minds."
-Daniel H. Pink, author ofA Whole New Mind and Drive

These lectures are as vital today as theywere when Peter delivered them. They cover significant territory, fromtheimportance of faith and the individual to the rise of the globaleconomy.It's a classic collection that belongs on every manager's bookshelf."
-Ken Blanchard, coauthor ofThe One Minute Manager and Leading at a Higher Level

Previously unpublished talks from the Father of Modern Management

Throughout his professional life, Peter F. Drucker inspired millions of business leaders not only through his famous writings but also through his lectures and keynotes. These speeches contained some of his most valuable insights, but had never been published in book form?until now.

The Drucker Lectures features more than 30 talks from one of management's most important figures. Drawn from the Drucker Archives at the Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University, the lectures showcase Drucker's wisdom, wit, profundity, and prescience on such topics as:

  • Politics and economics of the environment
  • Knowledge workers and the Knowledge Society
  • Computer and information literacy
  • Managing nonprofit organizations
  • Globalization

During his life, Drucker well understood that over the last 150 years the world had become a society of large institutions?and that they would only become larger and more powerful. He contended that unless these institutions were effectively managed and ethically led, the good health of society as a whole would be in peril. His prediction is unfolding before our eyes.

The Drucker Lectures is a timely, instructive book proving that responsible behavior and good business can, in fact, exist hand in hand.
