Information, Organization and Management is a comprehensive treatment of the economic and technical foundations for new organizational forms, relations and processes. It provides a wide range of underlying concepts and frameworks that help the reader understand the major forces driving organizational and marketplace change, rather than presenting these changes as simple outcomes of technological or management fads. 'The book has a heavier than usual economic bent, yet also considers the human cognitive aspects. The emphasis throughout is on the total concepts, with subsections at the end of each chapter describing the role of information and the implications for management. The content is well worth reading.' Paul Gray, Claremont Graduate School and University of California at Irvine.
