The latest volume in the Qualitative Research Methods series, A Narrative Approach to Organization Studies presents a specific approach to organization studies and provides illustrations of its use. Inspired by the works of Bakhtin, Eco, Rorty, and Silverman, author Barbara Czarniawska asserts that narratives are still the main carriers of knowledge in modern societies. Drawing on more than 25 years of field organization studies undertaken throughout Europe and the United States, Czarniawska takes the reader through the narrative approach, from positioning one's self in the field to writing up the research. A Narrative Approach to Organization Studies will be an invaluable research tool for researchers in management, public administration, sociology, anthropology, education, and political science.
