About This Item

New York: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1979. First edition of Drucker's autobiography. Octavo, original cloth. Warmly inscribed by Peter Drucker on the front free endpaper. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Paul Bacon. Adventures of a Bystander reflects Peter Drucker's vitality, infinite curiosity, and interest in people, ideas, and the forces behind them. His book is a personal and informal account of the rich life of an independent man of letters, a life that spans eight decades and two continents. He writes with wit and spirit about people he has encountered in a long and varied life, including Sigmund Freud, Henry Luce, Alfred Sloan, John L. Lewis, and Marshall McLuhan. After beginning with his childhood in Vienna during and after World War I, Drucker moves on to Europe in the 1920s and early 1930s, describing the imminent doom posed by Hitler and the Nazis. He then goes on to describe London during the 1930s, America during the New Deal era, the World War II years, and beyond.
