Description - In the Realm of Organisation by Robert Chia
The study of organisations in recent years has been dominated by administrative, economic and performative concerns. The contributors of this book acknowledge the impact of Robert Cooper on their own work and develop further his insistence that organisational analysis must be understood in terms of the rationalization of society as a whole. Amongst the contributors are many of the leading experts in organisational theory. Chapters cover a wide area of interest, including organizational science and post-modernism, the logics of organising and instrumental experience. In doing so, the book breaks new ground, departing from an emphasis on 'organisations' as social objects and moving towards a position of analysis which situates itself in the wider context of the late modernity. It is therefore essential reading for students across a range of disciplines, including sociology, management and organisational behaviour as well as political studies. It will also be of interest to all professionals who desire to have a better understanding of organizational society and of the future direction of organizational studies.
