Text/Work by Stephen Linstead

Book Description

The concepts of social sciences, social action and organizations as texts, are no longer unfamiliar ones. The use of language in social analysis has made researchers acutely aware of the importance of language use, not only to contain and express experience but also to create second order accounts of these experiences. This way of using language to shape our knowledge and guide social action, it is urged, makes social action and organization a 'text'. Text/Work is an innovative exploration of our understanding of the textual nature of organizational life, and considers the consequences of textual nature for organization studies. How can organizations be profitably written into textual forms? This is a bold investigation into a challenging and exciting area of study.

Management and Organization by Stephen Linstead Management and Organization, Paperback (January 2009)

Ideal for advanced undergraduate students who want to challenge the preconceptions of the subject area.

Organization and Identity by Stephen Linstead Organization and Identity, Paperback (December 2008)

Exploring identity as a contemporary concern in life and in the social sciences, this book focuses on how ideas about identity can be applied to organization and management studies. Bringing approaches from philosophy into the area of organization theory, it assesses their relevance and impact in a way which interrupts identity as a notion.
