SAGE Directions in Organization Studies

Front Cover
Stewart R Clegg
SAGE, Sep 26, 2009 - Business & Economics - 1840 pages
SAGE has unparalleled depth in journal back lists in the field of organization studies, and publishes several of the top journals in the field, including Organization, Human Relations and Organization Studies. This four-volume set brings together over sixty of the key papers published in SAGE books and journals since the turn of the millennium, many of which are not easily available in traditional library holdings.

Professor Stewart Clegg is widely recognised as a preeminent scholar of organization studies, and together with an international editorial board of ten renowned scholars in the field, has arranged this selection to help the reader better understand the developments in the field from different perspectives. Emphasis is placed on the 'history of the present' of organization studies, with articles that discuss contemporary issues and foreshadow further developments in the field, across popular theoretical perspectives such as discourse analysis, institutional theory and complexity theory.
