IDo Organizations Have Feelings? argues that any adequate organizational narrative for today must transcend the emotion/rationality divide and challenges the manager, the consultant and the business schools to take sociology seriously. The papers in this important collection were written over a period of thirty years by one of the leading world authorities on the sociology of organizations. Now presented together for the first time with an extended commentary and discussion by the author and followed by two specially written chapters bringing the story right up to date, they chart the development of the study of organizations during a period of epochal change from the modern to the global age. This book will be essential reading for anyone concerned with the way in which the interplay between organizations and society in all its aspects shapes our world today.
