Who’s Who in the Management Sciences

Edited by Professor Sir Cary L.Cooper, Alliance Manchester Business School, University of Manchester, UK

This major new directory provides, for the first time, up-to-date information on the work of leading scholars in the field of management. It will be an indispensable guide for management academics, and an invaluable reference source for the business community and officials in government and higher education.

Who’s Who in the Management Sciences is a unique source of reference, including entries on approximately three hundred and forty leading scholars in the field specialising in areas such as accounting, finance, management economics, organizational behavior, marketing, human resource management, management information systems, operations management, business ethics, strategic management and international management.

‘The Who’s Who is the first major global directory which provides up-to-date information on the major works of leading management scholars . . . No doubt, Cary L. Cooper and the publishers, Edward Elgar, have excellently performed the job of undertaking the publication of the classics in management thought and the Who’s Who which are complementary to each other. Every management and social sciences library, whether belonging to institutions or individuals, must possess these publications as they are extremely useful references for teaching and research in management.’
– Debi S. Saini, Management & Change

‘. . . an important contribution to business reference literature. . . . it is well done and fills an important gap.’
– Gordon J. Aamot, American Reference Books Annual 2002

‘Cooper’s book is sure to become the primary source for brief biographical information about leading scholars in management information systems, operations management, human resource management, organizational behavior, and other specialities in the management sciences. Cooper provides
substantial biographical information concerning some 350 scholars. . . . The book will be popular in part because there is no competition; it identifies scholars in the burgeoning fields that make up the management sciences. Recommended for all academic, public and special libraries.’
– R.L. Abbott, Choice
