Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for the Second Edition:

In the last 6 months or so I have discovered the text-book Managing & Organisations, and I have been completely amazed by it! This book has been acting as my 'go-to' guide, my conceptual map, my point of reference, and my starting point on an uncountable number of areas. It is of course understood that most textbooks are incapable of providing depth of knowledge, particularly when considering the amount needed to satisfy Ph.D. criteria. However, this text is an exception. But the greatest remark I can make of it is that it is such fun to read. I have actually found myself immersed in topics that otherwise are of no concern to my current research

He is one of the most published and cited authors in the top-tier journals in the Organization Studies field and the only Australian to be recognised a by a multi-method ranking, as one of the world’s top-200 “Management Guru’s” in What's the Big Idea? Creating and Capitalizing on the Best New Management Thinking by Thomas H. Davenport, Laurence Prusak, and H. James Wilson (2003), Harvard: Harvard Business Review Press. Because the central focus of his theoretical work has always been on power relations he has been able to write on many diverse and ubiquitous topics – because power relations are everywhere! He is the author of two widely used textbooks on Management & Organizations: An Introduction to Theory and Practice (with Martin Kornberger and Tyrone Pitsis) and Strategy: Theory and Practice (with Chris Carter, Martin Kornberger and Jochen Schweitzer), both published by Sage. He is also the chief editor of the Handbook of Organization Studies (with Cynthia Hardy, Walter F. Nord and Thomas B. Lawrence), Handbook of Power (with Mark Haugaard) and Handbook of Macro-Organizational Behaviour (with Cary Cooper), all published by Sage. In 2012 he will publish a book with Oxford University Press on The Virtues of Leadership: Contemporary Challenges for Global Managers (with Arménio Regio, and Miguel Pinha e Cunha), as well as a set of eight 'Major Works" on Power and Organizations and Political Power and Organizations, jointly edited with Mark Haugaard. Outside work he enjoys cultural pursuits, travel, and current affairs.

Martin Kornberger received his Ph D form the University of Vienna in 2002. Currently he works as full time Visiting Professor at the Department of Organization, Copenhagen Business School. Trained as philosopher, he researches and teaches about practices of organizing, strategizing, accounting, and marketing, and explores how they shape, and are shaped by, the economy and society at large.
