This book is part of a quest for a general theory of organizations valid in all cultures. Central to Frank Salter's investigation is the question of social power: why people obey their superiors. His approach is to locate the nature of organizational power in the behavioral details of hierarchical interactions in the institutional settings in which they occur.

Review quote

"Those interested in how emotional signs function in their social context may well find this book very interesting. . . . The research methods are those of human ethology, with agonistic and affiliative emotions studied in the context of dominant and submissive social rank. The findings focus on the role played by emotional signals in command and control."
