about

This original and ambitious work provides a fascinating examination of organizations from both a post-modern and new organizational economics perspective. Combining strategy, international business and organisational theory, it represents a ground-breaking critique of prevailing mainstream modernist theories of organization. Distinctive features include:

* a comprehensive analysis of social and organizational theory
* discussion and exploration of knowledge capitalism
* a critique of core competencies and resource based approaches to strategy, human resource management and organizational behaviour.

In an essential area of study for every business undergraduate and reflective manager, this outstanding book pulls together material which is currently scattered and poorly synthesised, and examines high-profile real-world business examples.

From Our Editors

This ambitious work by Peter Clark provides a unique combination of postmodern and organizational economics perspectives on organizations. Organizations in Action employs strategy, international business and organizational theory to form a revolutionary analysis of prevalent mainstream modernist theories of organization. An exhaustive investigation of social and organizational theory and organizational behaviour make this a rigorous and fascinating study.
