520    The author discusses her focus upon the relations between 
       gender, power and culture in organizations, and upon the 
       need to come to grips with the pervasive, elusive and 
       ambiguous nature of gender in work settings, including 
       through allusive, metaphoric analyses. She introduces two 
       key metaphors for the book. The first is of the sexual 
       contract, which centres on the sexuality of organizations 
       and 'static' gender difference. The second, of the 
       alchemic wedding, highlights a plurality of cultural 
       models of femaleness and woman/work relationships, and 
       processes of dynamic difference, transformation and 
       transcendence. Gender, Symbolism and Organizational 
       Cultures will be essential reading for students and all 
       those interested in issues of gender, power and change in 
       organizations, in organizational theory and behaviour, the
       psychology and sociology of organizations, and women's 
       studies.
