Organizing and Organizations is well liked by students and lecturers for its accessible, conversational tone and insightful real-life examples that introduce the study of organizations and organizational behaviour. The Fourth Edition consolidates and builds on the strengths of previous editions and now includes:
-stronger theoretical links and references throughout the chapters.
-expanded `reading on' sections relating to writers and key themes in each field
-direct and free links to relevant online journal articles
-expanded content on organisational misbehaviour and on power
-critical review questions at the end of each chapter to encourage debate.

`An excellent introductory text .... it provides a concise and well-written coverage of the main concepts in organizational behaviour. The combination of case studies and discussion of theoretical issues is well structured and provides the reader with a good framework for further reading' - Leadership and Organization Development
