This is an excellent reference tool with which to study organizational theory and practice' - International Review of Administrative Sciences 'The editors have put together an impressive reference work, serious in intent and rigorous in implementation. As a publishing achievement, and a scholarly 'event' in the field, SAGE is to be congratulated.

Close consideration is given to newly emergent, such as networks and complexity, as well as more established topics. Metaphors of conversation and discourse are engagingly invoked to make and explore new distinctions, directions and connections. It is a key reference volume for more advanced students of this rapidly developing field' - Hugh Willmott , Diageo Professor of Management Studies, Judge Business School, University of Cambridge 'Giving the authors of the Handbook of Organization Studies the opportunity to revise and update their earlier contributions makes this handbook unique. Comparing the revised chapters to their originals offers the reader unparalleled insight into how knowledge develops in our discipline. New frameworks and deeper understandings, grounded in continuing scholarship, abound in this updated classic' - Mary Jo Hatch, C. Coleman McGehee Eminent Scholars Research Professor of Banking and Commerce McIntire School of Commerce, University of Virginia A decade after it first published to international acclaim, the seminal Handbook of Organization Studies has been updated to capture exciting new developments in the field. Providing a retrospective and prospective overview of organization studies, the Handbook continues to challenge and inspire readers with its synthesis of knowledge and literature. As ever, contributions have been selected to reflect the diversity of the field. New chapters cover areas such as organizational change; knowledge management; and organizational networks. Part One reflects on the relationship between theory, research and practice in organization studies. Part Two address a number of the most significant issues to affect organization studies such as leadership, diversity and globalization. Comprehensive and far-reaching, this important resource will set new standards for the understanding of organizational studies. It will be invaluable to researchers, teachers and advanced students alike.

Management professor Walt Nord studies organization theory and behavior and is currently researching the topic in a political/economic context. The author of numerous books, textbooks, and scholarly articles, his newest book will offer a new philosophical framework for organization studies, seeking to overcome current polarizing debates by developing an improved philosophical perspective for organization studies. As an author, Nord received the George Terry Award in 1997 for co-editing the Handbook of Organization Studies, an annual award from the Academy of Management that is bestowed to a book judged to have made the most outstanding contribution to the field. The same academy named Nord a Distinguished University Professor in 2002 (USF named him Distinguished University Professor in 2003); these honors recognize significant contributions to the science and practice of management. Nord earned a BA in economics from Williams College, an MS in organizational behavior from Cornell University, and a PhD in social psychology from Washington University. Before joining USF in 1989, he taught at Tulane University, Northwestern University, Vanderbilt University, the University of British Columbia, and Washington University.
