A Conflict of Cultures

Show Summary Details


This chapter details the author's experiences upon becoming director of the Office of Child Development (OCD). Until his arrival in Washington, he had never experienced any sense of inferiority and never had a doubt that he could accomplish anything he set his mind to. His new position demanded more work than any one person could possibly do, and he should have worked day and night to at least try to keep up. He also discovered that in Washington he had many superiors to whom he had to answer to.
