Summary

This volume collects the most important works in organization theory, as written by the most influential authors in the field. These are the works of the "masters"-and, having withstood the test of time, the ideas presented by each of the works are commonly referenced in the study of organizational theory.

This text is designed to help students learn about, understand, and appreciate key themes and perspectives in the field. The authors begin the text by describing what organization theory is, how it has developed, and how its development has coincided with developments in other fields. Each chapter focuses on one major perspective of organization theory, helping students absorb these concepts before moving onto new ones.
