This work is both a theoretical and empirical analysis of the growing use of ideological control in business and administrative organizations. The empirical studies reported in this volume were conducted in different types of organizations and in different countries (Poland, the United States, and Sweden). Throughout this unique examination, the author emphasizes the role of ideologies as vehicles for organizational change--not, as traditionally seen, as instruments for maintaining the status quo.

Editorial Reviews

?This book is excellent. It should not only be required reading for anyone purporting to be a mediator or negotiator; they should be made to pass a stiff examination on its content! It is both a fascinating account of a bizzarre, complex and tragic conflict and an invaluable analysis of the methods employed, the mistakes, the successes, the ultimately dreadful failure, and the lessons for the future." Adam Curle Emeritus Professor of Political Science Bradford University England "Assefa and Wahrhaftig have given us an accurate history of the MOVE tragedy in Philadelphia and an incisive analysis of how conventional negotiation and mediation failed to resolve this deep-rooted conflict. Their study will be of great value to teachers and students in the burgeoning field of conflict resolution. It is highly recommended as it raises important questions and deals with a subject matter that has received too little attention by dispute resolution community.?-Richard E. Rubenstein, Professor of Conflict Resolution and Public Affairs, George Mason University American Association of Legal Studies
