'Power and Organizations is a marvelous addition to the literature on both organizations and power, as well as their intersection. It is well-grounded in the research on these topics and especially the wide-range of relevant theorizing. In terms of the latter, it moves effortlessly between Weber, Parsons, Goffman, critical theory, ethnomethodology, and much more. The book is terrific at bringing together theory, research and the world of organizations. In addition to being well-grounded, it is not only highly readable, but extremely interesting' - George Ritzer,

"Power is a core concept in organization theory and the social sciences more broadly, yet it is missing from many contemporary debates. This book places the study of power where it belongs: at the forefront of our concerns as organizational researchers. Engagingly written, impressive in scope, and with a clear view of what power means, this book will command a wide audience."
