When this volume was published in 1990, undocumented Mexican immigrants had become an important component of the US population. In this book the author analyzes the results of a unique survey conducted in Los Angeles County, where an estimated 44 percent of the undocumented Mexican population lived. The survey allows the author to make comparisons among the groups of undocumented and legal Mexican immigrants and to study the effects of legal status on their living conditions. The author also examines the findings of a number of other social scientists, providing a comprehensive summary of the data on undocumented Mexicans in the US. In his conclusion, he turns to an evaluation of policy options for incorporating this group into the US population and for immigrants. The book will be useful to sociologists and other social scientists as well as to lawyers and policy experts studying the problem of illegal immigrants.

This book, first published in 1958, concerns American industry and commerce, and is devoted to what people do while they are working and reasons for their behaviour. This volume should prove valuable as an attempt to make systematic sense out of work in our industrial world. The balance of fact and theory is useful to those interested in understanding this complex world of working behaviour, and will be of interest to students of human resource management.

Organisationsbildung setzt eine Erkennungsregel voraus, die erlaubt festzustellen, welche Handlungen und unter welchen Aspekten sie als Entscheidungen der Organisation zu gelten haben. Diese Erkenntnisregel ist zunächst und vor allem eine Mitgliedschaftsregel. Sie legt fest, wer als Mitglied des Systems angesehen wird und in welchen Rollen diese Mitgliedschaft ausgeübt werden kann. Durch Personalauswahl und Rollendefinition wird die Organisation gegen das sie umgebende sonstige Soziale abgegrenzt und ausdifferenziert. 35 Jahre nach der erstmaligen Veröffentlichung von "Funktionen und Folgen formaler Organisation" schließt "Organisation und Entscheidung" das Gesamtwerk Niklas Luhmanns mit einem weiteren Grundlagenwerk zur soziologischen Theorie formaler Organisationen ab.
