This broad, balanced introduction to organizational studies enables the reader to compare and contrast different approaches to the study of organizations.

Numerous other disciplines besides sociology are addressed in this book, including economics, political science, strategy and management theory. Topic areas discussed in this book are the importance of organizations; defining organizations; organizations as rational, natural, and open systems; environments, strategies, and structures of organizations; and organizations and society. For those employed in fields where knowledge of organizational theory is necessary, including sociology, anthropology, cognitive psychology, industrial engineering, managers in corporations and international business, and business strategists.

From the Publisher:

The field of organizations is characterized by a diversity of models and theories. This text successfully demonstrates how the many theories can be reduced to a few, manageable perspectives.

He has been at Stanford throughout his professional career. In addition to serving as chair of the Department of Sociology, from 1972 to 1989 he directed the Organization Research Training Program at Stanford under the auspices of the National Institute of Mental Health, and was the founding director of the Stanford Center for Organizations Research, 1988-1996.

He is the author or co-author of over one hundred scholarly articles and book chapters and has written or co-written about a dozen books and edited or co-edited another dozen. His most recent books include Institutional Change and Healthcare Organizations (2000) with Martin Ruef, Peter Mendel and Carol Caronna, and Institutions and Organizations, Second Edition (2001). He has served on the editorial board of many professional journals and was the editor of the Annual Review of Sociology from 1986-1991.

He has also been active in policy circles at the national level, serving on study sections for the National Science Foundation, National Institute of Mental Health, and National Center for Health Service Research.
