Comprehensively encompassing all topics within the area of organizational analysis, this book provides key readings which complement the study of organizations and organizational theory. David Knights and Hugh Willmott's carefully chosen readings are always thought-provoking and occasionally controversial. Classic articles as well as more recent pieces are included. As a whole, this book reflects the significant shifts emerging in organization theory today and will help familiarise the student with the competing paradigms central to the study of organizations. Subjects covered include traditional topics such as leadership, strategy and human resource management, as well as emergent areas such as consumption, diversity, environment and globalization. Organizational Analysis will help students learn how to critically analyse original sources and will expand their knowledge of the subject. It is an ideal point of reference for further reading. A complete list of contributors to the essential readings is available at www.cengage.co.uk/knights.
