Sociology of Organizations

About The Book

In this newly revised edition of a benchmark reference, twenty-five articles explore a variety of classical and current perspectives on the sociology of organizations.

Individual entries cover the individual in the organization, organization structure, organizations and their environments, public institutions, private industry, women in organizations, centralization versus decentralization, bureaucracy, human service organizations, factories, education organizations, and labor unions.

Sociology of Organizations includes noteworthy writing from significant theorists ranging from Max Weber, Talcott Parsons, and Robert Michels to Peter Blau, Karl Weick, and Rosabeth Kanter.

The innovative perspectives included within this book capture the lively state of a field in which no single theory or paradigm dominates.
