The range of themes and topics explored provides a rich picture of the realities of organizational life, and of the varied contributions that make up the study of OB. For example, the concept of alienation is discussed in relation to both assembly lines and to call centres, leading into a discussion about the meaning of work.The new edition guides the reader through critical perspectives on classic organizational topics, including new chapters on Personality and Perception.
