meetings, establishment, operation, termination, organization, local government
Why would an academic psychologist and an academic engineer write a book about "how to set up organizations" and run their meetings? The authors do not answer that question in their preface so we are free to speculate that this is their escape from the "meeting madness" that threatens every academic. They have attempted not only to bring some order into that omnipresent aspect of their own lives but also to share the fruits of their efforts with the rest of us in this very fine handbook.
