Summary
"The first two editions of this book were a runaway success with students who loved the lively, focused and challenging discussion of classical and current ideas about organizations and their management. This new edition, which can be used across a range of management courses, has been updated in light of the continuing financial and economic crisis. It shows how this grew out of a thirty year experiment in 'new capitalism' and links this to changes in the world of work organizations in terms of growing insecurity and inequality and to shifts in the status of management. Containing a new foreword, the third edition provides a challenging discussion of core, classical ideas but also covers issues such as new forms of control, identity regulation and the ethics and politics of studying organizations. Chris Grey shies away from the sterility of conventional textbooks, offering students an accessible and palatable overview of the field of organization studies that questions and challenges the traditional literature."--Publisher's website
