9780415315203: Key Readings in Crisis Management: Systems and Structures for Prevention and Recovery

One of the first books of its kind in the subject area, this groundbreaking text brings together seminal papers in the area of crisis management and organizational theory. Covering this important field from both a theoretical and practical perspective, it features key readings from Karl Weick, Charles Perrow and many other luminaries of the field.

Divided into four main sections it covers:

  • understanding crisis management
  • modelling the crisis management process
  • the cultural and psychological dynamics of risk and crisis management
  • crisis management in practice.

Comprehensive and thought provoking, the collected readings review the approaches and limitations of crisis management processes and their cultural and psychological dynamics. Featuring expert editorial commentary on all the key readings, this is an essential and illuminating text that crosses discplines and covers the diversity within crisis management. As such, it is an invaluable introduction for students.
