    Organizing Hope

    Edited by Daniel Ericsson, Monika Kostera

  5. The Political Constitution of the Corporation

    The Political Constitution of the Corporation

    Alexander Styhre
    In this insightful book, Alexander Styhre examines how corporations, often understood primarily as economic entities or legal devices, seek to influence and shape the market and the wider society in which they operate.

  6. Handbook of Research on Management and Organizational History

    Handbook of Research on Management and Organizational History

    Edited by Kyle Bruce
    Emerging from what was a somewhat staid sub-discipline, there is currently a battle for the soul of management and organizational history (MOH), at the centre of which is a widespread concern that much recent work has been more about how one should or might do history rather than actually doing historical work. If ever there was a time for a new volume on MOH, this is certainly it. Learn More

    Career Dynamics in a Global World

    Edited by Premarajan Raman Kadiyil, Anneleen Forrier, Michael B. Arthur
    Career Dynamics in a Global World takes on a major question in the global research and practice of career development and adopts a distinctive approach in response. The authors address the question of how and to what extent a predominant influence of Western thinking about careers interferes with our understanding of careers in other parts of the world. The approach involves identifying career topics for further exploration, recruiting teams of Indian and Westerns scholars on each topic to share their insights, and laying out those insights to help both careers researchers and practitioners see their significance.

  14. How Business Organizes Collectively

    How Business Organizes Collectively

    Hervé Dumez, Sandra Renou
    Collective action by firms is a central societal phenomenon, whereby firms set up specific devices, referred to by the authors as ‘Firms’ Collective Action Devices’ (FCADs). This timely book shows how the phenomenon has been studied in a variety of academic disciplines, including history, political science, economics, sociology, management and organization theory, and how FCADs are used in lobbying, and to tackle issues such as those related to the environment and human rights. The book uses the concepts of meta-organization and heterarchy to give a fascinating overview of firms’ collective action, investigate some little-known aspects of the phenomenon, and examine the impact of FCADs on the economy and democracy.
