About this book


This book brings together recent theories and research in the study of organizations to provide a new perspective on the central role of organizations in modern societies. Particular attention is paid to developing a theoretical framework which integrates the analysis of organizations from different sectors (private, public and voluntary) and from different societies (special attention is paid to Japan and the USSR).
