Fundamentals in Organizational Behavior brings together the most influential and field-defining articles in organizational behaviour. The volumes are a collection of the published works from leading international scholars and academics throughout the world, collated from the foremost journals in the field. Organizational behaviour has grown enormously over the last decade. As the nature of work dramatically changes, the science of organizational behaviour is now critical in informing practice. It is therefore absolutely vital that a solid academic reference is available which presents the outstanding work and research in the field. This resource allows scholars and researchers to be more effectively informed of the main developments, while also setting the tone for future research. Fundamentals in Organizational Behavior presents the `gold standard' for university business and management schools. The articles provide the foundation stones for a true understanding of the development of organizational behavior. Academics researching and writing will be enhanced with an understanding of the discipline's past - and future - and enabled to tackle the topical agenda items associated with the changing nature of work. The articles in this four-volume work have been selected by Professor Cary Cooper with a team of Associate Editors, all expert academics in Business and Management. Professor Cooper provides a full introduction to this major reference, offering an overview of the field, as well as drawing on the explanations from his Associate Editors about the qualities of the various articles and what they have brought to the field. This is an important reference tool for all libraries concerned with organizational behavior, human resource management, organizational psychology and management studies more generally, as well as sociology and psychology.
