Elgar Introductions to Management and Organization Theory are stimulating and thoughtful introductions to main theories in management, organizational behaviour and organization studies, expertly written by some of the world’s leading scholars. Designed to be accessible yet rigorous, they offer concise and lucid surveys of the key theories in the field.
The aims of the series are two-fold: to pinpoint essential history, and aspects of a particular theory or set of theories, and to offer insights that stimulate critical thinking. The volumes serve as accessible introductions for undergraduate and graduate students coming to the subject for the first time. Importantly, they also develop well-informed, nuanced critiques of the field that will challenge and extend the understanding of advanced students, scholars and policy-makers.
