Overview

Each article in this collection of readings has been carefully chosen for its tremendous impact on the field of organizational behavior. It focuses specifically on micro-organizational behavior, which has almost uniquely been influenced by social psychology. The reader is carefully structured into sections which reflect a progression through widening levels of analysis: the science of organizational behavior; decision making; negotiation and social dilemmas; groups and teams; procedural justice; relationships and trust; and values, norms and politics. This volume is in an attractive, user-friendly format and will make excellent supplementary reading to courses in social psychology, industrial and organizational psychology, and business.
