Alex Haslam has thoroughly revised and updated his ground-breaking original text with this new edition. While still retaining the highly readable and engaging style of the best-selling first edition, he presents extensive reviews and critiques of major topics in organizational psychology - including leadership, motivation, communication, decision making, negotiation, power, productivity and collective action - but with much more besides.

Key features of this 2nd Edition:

An entirely new chapter on organizational stress which deals with highly topical issues of stress appraisal, social support, coping and burnout.

New, wider textbook format and design making the entire book much more accessible for students.

Wide range of pedagogical features included - suggestions for further reading included at the end of each chapter; comprehensive glossaries of social identity, social psychological and organizational terms.
