'Most books on Organizational Behaviour are still gender-free zones. This book however treats gender as it needs to be treated, as a fundamental organizing principle of organization .

Professor Paul Iles, of Liverpool Business School, Liverpool John Moores University:

Challenging mainstream accounts of organizational behaviour and management, which treat gender as an optional extra, this book demonstrates how it can be an essential organizing principle. Each chapter covers one or more of the principal mainstream topics before deconstructing and critiquing these and suggesting other ways of understanding these issues.
