This thesis provides initial groundwork in condensing and extracting from the literature of management and the broad social sciences those concepts that are deemed pertinent to Navy managers in the fleet in helping to solve their management problems. In the form of a reference handbook, it cross-references for specific problems those concepts which can pose new ideas useful in managing people in the Navy. Each concept shows where additional information about it can be found through reference to a reading list. An extensive glossary is provided, precluding the need for a dictionary. The concepts are drawn from history, psychology, social psychology, sociology, political science, anthropology, economics, management, organization development, biology, philosophy, and the military. The problems are categorized as enlisted problems, officer problems, individual problems, unit problems, Navy problems, American problems, and human problems. Two additional chapters explain each social science and the difference between them and how to use the book.
