Group Relations, Management, and Organization brings together a timely collection of new and important essays by an international group of authors. The authors represent different cultures, roles, and institutional backgrounds, as well as a variety of perspectives on the past, present, and future of group relations and its current impact on management, organizations, institutions, and societies. The importance of the book is in the perspective that it offers on the traditions of group relations and the changes that are currently taking place within this field. It is essential reading for those currently involved in the practice of group relations, for management educators and students, and for organizational consultants. The book provides the reader with reflections and insights which are highly relevant to an in-depth understanding both of the role of manager and to the dynamics of organizing.
