Do Organizations Have Feelings?
Do Organisations have Feelings? argues that any adequate explanation of the way organizations function for those engaged in business and those who study it must transcend the traditional divide between reason and emotion. The papers in this important collection by one of the leading world authorities in the studies of organizations were written over a period of thirty years. They are now presented together for the first time with an extended commentary and discussion by the author and two specially written chapters to bring the story right up-to-date. Together they provide a fascinating history of the way organizations have reflected changes in society at large as we move into the epoch of globalisation.
