Shenhav, Yehouda
Administrative Science Quarterly, v40 n4 p557-85 Dec 1995
Traces the genesis of the systems paradigm in organizational study in the United States to 19th-century engineering practices, based on primary data from three professional journals. The systems paradigm evolved from three forces: the professionalization of mechanical engineering, the political culture of Progressivism, and the politics of labor unrest. (MLH)
