This book is a comprehensive and systematic examination of the insights psychoanalysis can offer to the study of organizations and organizational behaviour.

Richly illustrated with examples, Yiannis Gabriel's exhaustive study provides fresh understandings of the role of creativity, control mechanisms, leadership, culture, and emotions in organizations.

Core theories are explained at length and there is a chapter on research strategies. Extensive reference is made to practical cases, and there is a review of the key debates.

Industry Reviews

`If the reader seeks an informed and sophisticated discussion of psychoanalytic theory and organization, this book is a must read' - Contemporary Psychology

`The book is a good read. Gabriel has an engaging writing style, liberally interspersed with vignettes, cases, and quotes...While the reader may not agree with some of what Gabriel is espousing, the author presents his material in a non-judgemental manner.... And who knows? Maybe Gabriel is foreshadowing some new directions in organizational theory and even new research methodology' -Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology
