William H. Whyte in conversation with Ernest Gellner
Mr. Whyte's book of this title aroused considerable interest-and alarm-about the effect of industrial society in America upon personality and patterns of leadership.
In this conversation, recorded during a visit to London earlier this year, he reflects upon the pressures towards conformity in various fields—management, education, social research—in Britain as well as America; and upon certain counter-trends which he believes may be changing the picture since his book appeared in 1956.
