Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This book provides a review and synthesis of contemporary theory and research on organizational culture. Chapters focus on a wide variety of theoretical and methodological approaches to culture, identifying types of organizational cultures, and tracing phases in cultural evolution. In addition, several chapters are devoted to dealing with practical applications, such as the processes of socialization and identification, as well as the management of culture in organizations.

"This is an excellent analytical sweep through a large and complex body of theory, research and popular discussion, coupled with a thoughtful, innovative, large-scale study. The study is well-grounded in the review, and the review is very up-to-date and comprehensive. I especially like the nonreductive approach to competing perspectives and the constructive tone that permeates the discussion." -- Ted J. Smith, III, Virginia Commonwealth University

Mary Leslie Mohan is Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication at State University of New York, College at Geneseo.
