    This book spans seventy years of theory from Max Weber's seminal writings on bureaucratic organization to the latest management thinking represented by Handy, Peters and Waterman. Covering three main areas of interest, those of the structure of organizations, management and decision making, as well as that of organizational behaviour, this thoroughly revised and updated edition contains a vast amount of new contributions. It is a widely acknowledged text in its field, and an essential handbook for all those it concerns. It has also been announced as a core text for Open University courses from January 2008.

Derek S. Pugh is Visiting Professor of International Management at the Open University Business School. He has also edited ORGANIZATION THEORY for Penguin. David J. Hickson is Professor of International Management and Organization at the University of Bradford Management Centre. The authors have also co-authored the bestselling MANAGEMENT WORLDWIDE.
