Overview

Organizing and Organizations is well loved by students and lecturers for its accessible, conversational tone and insightful real-life examples introducing the study of organizations and organizational behavior. Stephen Fineman, Yiannis Gabriel and David Sims, eminent academics in the field, cover a wealth of key concepts, research and literature leaving students informed and engaged.

The Fourth Edition builds on the strengths of previous editions, to provide you with a textbook that continues to stand out from the rest. This new edition has been fully developed to include:

  • New chapters on Influence and Power and Innovation and Change
  • A new section within each chapter that highlights the theoretical links informing the chapters
  • New review questions to test and apply your understanding of the ideas in each chapter
  • New ‘reading on’ sections that direct you to free links to highly recommended journal articles relating to each chapter’s coverage, and found on the companion website
  • New critical review questions at the end of each chapter to encourage debate
  • Each chapter is now enlivened with pictorial illustrations
  • A fully updated glossary of key concepts in the study of organizations

Organizing and Organizations integrates a strong critical approach throughout. It will continue to be an excellent support to students of management, organizational behavior, and the psychology and sociology of organizations.
