Ann Cunliffe is Associate Professor in the Anderson Schools of Management at the University of New Mexico.

Review:

`Review from previous edition I like the different perspectives presented rather than simply the modern which seems to be typical of most popular texts in this area.' J. G. Whinney, Senior Lecturer, University of Ulster

`A comprehensive introduction to the study of organizations, with an appraisal of the different perspectives that have contributed to the knowledge of organizations. The volume is developed in three parts. Part 1 introduces the multi-perspective approach. Part 2 explores the ways in which organizations are analysed, notably as entities within an environment, as subjects of strategic action, as technologies, as structures, as cultures and as physical structures. Part 3 covers topics of central importance in organization theory including decision making, power, conflict, control, and change within organizations.' International review of Administrative Sciences (IRAS) Number 1. 1999.

`It is not often that you can read a work on organization theory that you feel that you can recommend to students and to practising managers. Mary Jo Hatch's book provides a good read for both groups. It presents a range of theories in a useful, attractive and accessible format that will not only enable aspiring managers to come to grips with what is going on around them, but will also enable more experienced practitioners to understand and influence what occurs in their organizations.' Professor Iain Mangham, School of Management, Bath

`Organization Theory is both a historical testimony and a peek into the future, and it will be the main guide to organization studies well into the 2000s.'' Barbara Czarniawska-Joerges, Gothenburg University, Sweden

`Few books so successfully communicate the spirit and possibility of enquiry ... Here students will learn, and learn to use for themselves, modernist, symbolic, and postmodern perspectives ... If you want a current text that is broad, coherent, and reader-friendly, then look no further!' Stewart Clegg, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia

`A useful summary of the historical perspective.' Long Range Planning
