4 Block, Peter Stewardship - Choosing Service Over Self-Interest
San Francisco Berrett-Koehler 1995 1881052281 / 9781881052289 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
A Fine unmarked copy in red cloth boards with VG dustjacket which is not price clipped. xxiv + 264 pages. First edition, seventh printing.

No one should make a living anymore watching, measuring, or defining what is best for others - everybody manages and everybody does real work. He spells out extensive reforms needed in many areas: day to day management practices, role of staff groups (accounting, legal, personnel, MIS, and so on), budgetary and financial practices, human resource practices, and pay and performance appraisal systems.
