New York: Basic Books, 1973.
First edition. xiii, 507pp. Tan cloth with blue spine lettering. Review copy with publisher's slip laid in. Fine in Near Fine unclipped dust jacket, a little curled along top edge and lightly worn at head, back flap creased. A lovely copy of the American sociologist's prescient work that popularized the now ubiquitous term "post-industrial society." It predicted the growth of the service sector, the unprecedented influence of corporations on public life, a drastic change in how Americans work, and the importance of recognizing "intellectual technology"-- concomitent with today's "creative class" and "knowledge economy." Rare in collectible condition. Item #170523001
