About this product
- DescriptionThis Handbook re-asserts the importance of classical sociology as a rich source of insight for contemporary work in organization studies, and demonstrates the way in which these pioneers were deeply engaged with practical, social, and political issues of their time, compared with the increasingly academic focus of research in more recent decades.
