"A valuable guide to major issues in the field." - Gareth Morgan York University "The Handbook of Organization Studies is a stunning accomplishment. The volume relics of an earlier era, like me, to rethink the fields of organizations and organization studies. It captures the exciting differences that are part of our literature in one place. The volume undoubtedly will stimulate new inquiries that will require another such handbook in another three decades." - Richard H. Hall Distinguished Service Professor, Department of Sociology and Management, State University of New York, Albany "The Handbook of Organization Studies completes the trilogy begun by two previous path-breaking handbooks--March's Handbook of Organizations (1965) and Nystrom and Starbucks's Handbook of Organizational Design (1981). Like the earlier two handbooks,the editors have recruited an international group of up-and-coming junior scholars, as well as seasoned veterans, and the result is stunning... a gold mine of ideas." - Howard E. Aldrich, Kenan Professor of Sociology, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill "A must for any organization researcher's bookshelf." --Koya Azumi, Professor of Sociology, International Christian University, Tokyo, Japan "The Handbook of Organization Studies provides a much-needed synthesis of the literature and knowledge about organizations and organizing. . . . I recommend it as an essential reference book for business schools as well as social science departments." --Jean-Claude Thoenig, INSEAD, Fontainebleau, France The first handbook of its kind in over three decades, The Handbook of Organization Studies presents a major retrospective and prospective overview of the arena of organization studies. Drawing on the talents of an outstanding international group of editors and contributors, who assemble, assess, and synthesize the key concepts delineating the field, it is an unrivaled benchmark resource for researchers, teachers, and advanced students alike. This exceptional volume poses new questions for organizations with its in-depth analysis of the general, the specific, the past, the present, and the future. A central focus of this work is to reflect and honor the diversity and dynamic of the field as well as to debate the very notion of a field of "organization studies" itself. Chapters examine the following topics: the historical development of the study of organizations, including organizational ecology, organization economics, industrial theory, feminism, and postmodernism research emerging from broad perspectives, such as leadership, decision making, innovation, diversity, globalization, and ecology theory, research, and practice in organization studies The Handbook of Organization Studies also discusses the implications this volume has for the key theme of representation in organizational analysis--representation of individual and organizational subjects, and what this means for the researcher as a subject.
