In addition, it stimulates modeling conflict at work at relevant levels of analyses: the interpersonal and group, and the organizational. It is appropriate for scholars and practitioners in the areas of industrial-organizational psychology, human resource management, organizational behavior, applied psychology, and social psychology.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is the definitive source of the state of the research on conflict in organizations. The editors, who are leading experts themselves, chose authors with deep personal insight into their respective areas. The result is an integrative treatment of the antecedents, processes, and outcomes of conflict at multiple levels within organizations. The book is timely, comprehensive, provocative, and will be a great use to scholars and practitioners alike." - Jeanne M. Brett, Northwestern University

    what an PHENOMENAL book!

    Michele, you did an outstanding job on this book. I believe that this will be very crucial to students. I finished this book 10 hours after purchasing it, and it helped me with my exams. Thank you so much!
