Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book is a sociological account of the connections between organizations and people in them, looking at the social processes of self and identity. The text offers a fresh account of organizational life in an era of contemporary capitalist societies, dealing with both modernist and postmodernist perspectives. Drawing upon the latest research and data, this book provides an informative and international discussion of the central role of organizations in our lives and considers what they have done to us, and for us.
