Born in Vienna in 1909, Peter F. Drucker was educated in Austria and England. From 1929 he was a newspaper correspondent abroad and an economist for an international bank in London. Since 1937 he has been in the United States, first as an economist for a group of British banks and insurance companies, and later as a management consultant to several of the country's largest companies, as well as leading companies abroad. Drucker has since had a distinguished career as a teacher, first as Professor of Politics and Philosophy at Bennington College, then for more than twenty years as Professor of Management at the Graduate Business School of New York University. Since 1971 he has been Clarke Professor of Social Science at Claremont Graduate School in California. In addition to his management books, Peter Drucker is also renowned for his prophetic books analysing politics, economics and society. These books span fifty years of modern history beginning with The End of Economic Man (1939) and including The Practice of Management; Innovation and Entrepreneurship; Managing in the Next Society; Management Challenges in the 21st Century; The Effective Executive and The Essential Drucker.
'The idea alone is good: two old men, the American management guru Peter F. Drucker and the Japanese tycoon Isao Nakauchi, enter into a dialogue. The book that emerges from this is even better...Drucker knows so much, and views the economic situation more from the outside. Nakauchi can do so much, which means of course that he is right in the thick of it. An ideal mix for all future entrepreneurs, as the founders of tomorrow must achieve both: theoretical reflection and hands-on creativity.' Manager, October 1996 'Peter Drucker was the first of the analytical futurists and the first of the management philosophers. And for me he is still the best.' Wall Street Journal 'His breadth of vision, his internationalism and his sober realism combine to make his analysis of the present and predictions about the future gripping.' The Economist '...Drucker, the most enduring management thinker of our time.' Business Week '...it would be difficult to overestimate his contribution to management thinking.' Financial Times
