by George Davis and Glegg Watson

Book Image Not Available
Overview
When it was published in 1982, Business Week called it a book "packed with insights that might otherwise remain hidden for years." The New York Times Book Review called it: "A thoroughly readable book of immediate interest to average readers as well as specialists in business administration, psychology and social and cultural history." Black Life in Corporate America became an immediate bestseller and was one of the most widely reviewed books of the year. The authors were asked by almost every graduate business school in the nation to create and teach a course based on the book’s insights. They taught their course for two terms at the Yale School of Organization and Management, making it the first course in the nation in multicultural management.
