I am a Phd student in social work and a former adjunct professor. I am interested in Follett and will be including her work in my dissertation. Secondly, I believe her work is important as social work and the human services sector needs to fully explore alternatives to current management approaches.
If you haven't already come across a 1959 book, Community Organization in Action, I recommend you get a copy. I just checked my favorite book search, BookFinder.com, and Better World Books is selling a copy for $5.58, which includes shipping (probably in the USA).
It is a compilation of "basic literature and critical comments" collected by two professors in the School of Social Work, one from Michigan State Univ, and the other U of Michigan. Mary Parker Follett is featured in a chapter on "Democracy and Group Thinking," excerpted from The New State. It has 75 different chapters covering a wide range of topic still of interest today.
She was definitely an early community organizer! Warmly, Albie Davis
