In response to the needs of lecturers, the acclaimed Handbook of Organization Studies has been made available as two major paperback textbooks.
In this, the first of a two-volume paperback edition of the landmark Handbook of Organization Studies, editors Stewart Clegg and Cynthia Hardy survey the field of organization studies.
Studying Organization is an ideal textbook around which to build courses on organization theory and research methodology.
Central to the enterprise has been a concern to reflect and honour the manifest diversity of the field, including recognition of the extent to which the very notion of a single field of organization studies is debated. Part One locates the study of organization by reviewing some of the most significant theoretical paradigms to have shaped our understanding. The second part reflects on the relationships between theory and research in organization studies.
`The book should have a place on the shelves of every institution purporting to teach management. The studies contained in the book each require considerable critical reflection, and are aimed at those with a deep interest in organization theory rather than the student concerned to obtain the minimum knowledge required to pass a professional examination in the subject. The specialists will refer to this book again and again' - British Journal of Administrative Management
