That contrast has been responsible for a gradual change in the contents of the course from the theoretical to the practical, with increasing emphasis upon those aspects of psychology which have been shown to be of value in the business and industrial worlds. This text is the result of that course. In it an attempt is made to introduce the student to those aspects of personnel problems in business and industry to which psychology has given, or can give, a contribution. Many aspects of personnel work are not included, partly because of the little that psychology has contributed to them and partly because of their being adequately discussed in books on management; such problems as group relations, the significance of union activities, and governmental interference in business, while partly psychological, are primarily economic and are adequately discussed in books on management problems"--Preface.
