An entertaining and unique look at the role of women in 20th century America through well-known songs. Dorothy Marcic has created a fascinating and original story chronicling the development of women. Using the country's Top 40 hits with archetypes, lyrics, and personal stories from 1900 through 2000, she shows how in the early part of the century song lyrics resonated with women's dependency and compliant natures; echoed their eventual rebellion in the late 1960s; and mirrored their development as mature, independent persons in the 90s.

Professor Dorothy Marcic, Ed. D. and M.P.H., is on faculty at Vanderbilt University in the department of Leadership and Organizations, Peabody College. She also serves as Director of Graduate Programs in Human Resource Development at Vanderbilt. A recent Fulbright scholar at the University of Economics-Prague, where she taught MBA students and practicing managers, her consulting practice has grown to include multinationals and governmental agencies in the Czech Republic. In addition to Understanding Management, she is the author of several other books, including Organizational Behaviour and Management International, Women and Men in Organizations, and Managing with the Wisdom of Love: Uncovering Virtue in People in People and Organizations. She began her extensive and varied academic career at Arizona State University with additional academic postings at St. Bonaventure University, the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and La Universidad Aut�noma de Guadalajara, Mexico.
