Summary Organizations has become a classic work and a seminal book in organization theory. Since it was first published, it has become widely recommended for those studying and researching in the field, and is now so frequently cited that the original authors have written an entirely new introduction for the now reissued text in paperback. Written by two of the world's most important contributors to the field, one a Nobel prize winner, it is an essential reference for every serious student of organizations.
