Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The organization of this volume is done with a clear conceptual structure including a theoretical focus on the commitment literature. It will offer the reader one up-to-date comprehensive picture of what we know about this topic and what we need to know with future research." – Robert Pritchard, University of Central Florida

"The topic of commitment in organizations has received considerable attention in the organizational research literature in recent years. Consequently, this book is especially timely, as it brings together in one place a comprehensive and sympathetic coverage of the best available thinking and scholarship on this subject. Additionally, the multiple perspectives brought to bear on this topic provide a special plus of the book. This volume is definitely essential reading for graduate students or others who want to acquire in-depth knowledge of the subject matter, and also will be highly useful for those who plan to undertake their own research in this area." –Lyman W. Porter, University of California, Irvine

"If you want to know about commitment- its meaning, measurement, manifestations, and the body research that underpins each of those- this is the ‘go-to’source for current information and unanswered research questions." –Wayne F. Cascio, University of Colorado, Denver

"Organizational commitment has been one of the more popular topics in organizational behavior in the past 20 years. The editors-some of the leading researchers on the topic-have assembled an impressive set of authors and chapters. The book not only provides a sorely needed review of the latest research, it considers many of the contextual, cultural, business, and environmental challenges to the commitment concept. I consider the book ‘must reading’ for any researcher interested in commitment, job attitudes, and attachment to the workplace." –Timothy A. Judge, University of Florida
