Chapter 36: Positive Organizational Scholarship

"Thorough and comprehensive. Thoughtful critique and new insights."

Chris Argyris and James B. Conant Professor , Emeritus Harvard University

'The Sage Handbook of Organizational Behavior is a fine addition to past works of reference in the field, edited by two prominent scholars who are internationally known. Its approach is both critical and original in many incisive ways, aspiring to a cutting-edge coverage of the core and periphery of OB. Many of the chapter authors stick their necks out and avoid the more obvious, conventional expositions of their topic. It covers a wide range of topics of potential use to both undergraduate and postgraduate students of the subject, as well as academics, researchers and practitioners. It will be of particular interest to those on MBA and DBA courses. It can be strongly recommended as an essential faculty library purchase, as well as a useful tool for individuals interested in having such a guide to the subject at hand'.

Professor Malcolm Warner, Emeritus Fellow, Wolfson College and Judge Business School, University of Cambridge.
