Four Volume Set
Edited by:
  • Stewart R Clegg - The University of Sydney

March 2012 | 1 528 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Internationally renowned editors, Stewart R. Clegg and Mark Haugaard, have joined forces to compile two separate but related collections on power theory - a field that continues to have a huge impact across the social sciences.

Power and Organizations takes stock of power theory by reviewing its foundations, current status and emerging new directions in organization studies, while its companion, Power and Politics continues this work in the context of political theory.

The collections follow chronological and thematic ordering to cover the sprawling and eclectic work on power.

Stewart R. Clegg, widely recognized as a preeminent scholar of organization studies, takes the role of lead editor for this collection, which focuses on power theory in relation to organization studies.
