About

Overview

The International Encyclopedia of Organizational Studies is the definitive description of the field, spanning individual, organizational, societal, and cultural perspective in a cross-disciplinary manner. The old model of a North American core exporting its domain assumptions to the rest of the world, while by no means absent, is less marked than it used to be. Thus, editors Stewart R. Clegg and James R. Bailey have sought to capture much of the cutting-edge thinking that characterizes the best scholarship in the United States and elsewhere. The Encyclopedia is thoroughly cross-referenced and entries are based around a series of broad themes.

Key features include:

  • Offers a comprehensive overview of many of the major ideas, concepts, terms, and approaches that characterize this diverse field of organization studies
  • Illustrates the fluidity, dynamism, and innovation that now occur in organization studies--internationally
  • Brings together a team of international contributors from the fields of: Management, Psychology, Sociology, Communications, Education, Political Science, Public Administration, Anthropology, Law and other related areas.
  • Examines how organizations are devices for structuring life and lives are structured by organizations
