Throughout its history, popular mass-mediated culture has turned its attention to representing and interrogating organizational life. As early as Charlie Chaplin's cinematic classic Modern Times and as recently as the primetime television hit The Simpsons, we see cultural products that engage reflexively in coming to terms with the meaning of work, technology and workplace relations. It is only since the late 1990s, however, that those who research management and organizations have come to collectively dwell on the relationship between organizations and popular culture - a relationship where the cultural meanings of work are articulated in popular culture, and where popular culture challenges taken for granted knowledge about the structure and practice work. Key to this development has been the journal Culture and Organization - a journal that has been centre stage in creating new vistas through which the 'cultural studies of organization' can be explored. This book brings together the journal's best contributions which specifically address how popular culture represents, informs and potentially transforms organizational practice. Featuring contributors from the UK, USA, Europe and Australia, this exciting anthology provides a comprehensive review of research in organization and popular culture.

Speed of production, of information flow, of capital moving through deregulated financial and trading systems is apparently ubiquitous, as indeed is its seemingly inexorable increase in the consequently ever shorter here and now that we inhabit. But with so much going on, and going on so quickly, how can it all or can any of it be attended to? This volume assembles a range of thoughtful contributors who have bent their minds to deploy a range of different perspectives to consider the current fascination with speed and its implications for organizing and organizations. Through writings ordered into three key themes The Speed of Organizational Identity, The Speed of Organizational Technology, and The Speed of Organizational Imagery the contributors invite the reader to take gulps of theoretical and reflective air, to hold in abeyance for a moment the breathless talk of a faster tomorrow, to pause to look at the hurdy gurdy. Fast food, dotcoms, hotdesking, and international travelers fly across the page, skillfully illuminated by insights drawn from theorists past and present. The speed of organization will certainly be more vivid after having read this book.

Unique to the Southern Railway and later the Southern Region were the three electric 'Booster' locomotives - CC1, CC2 and 20003. Their story was touched upon in the Preview Issue of Southern Way, but now we can at last describe the full history and operation of these engines over their 25 years of service. Authors Simon Lilley and John Weynon have between them vast experience in both historical research and electrical engineering. Between them they are ideally placed to chronicle the design, building and operation of these engines and which in some ways were far ahead of their time. The trials and tribulations of their operation, from labour relations to incidents in service, are also chronicled. The highly readable text incorporates many new and fascinating photographs.
