Organizational development in the public sector
As a stand-alone treatment of Organizational Development (OD), this is an excellent supplement to traditional textbooks in the field and is a good addition to readings in organizational behavior and principles of management.

Carnevale also explores conflict resolution, leadership issues, systems theory, public-private differences, process consultation, a brief history of modern management reform, group dynamics, trust, hierarchy, and labor relations.
