Description - Variations in Organization Science by Joel Baum

`Given the currency of the issues and the status of the contributors, this book will be an important foundational source for faculty and doctoral students in the organizations sciences' - Michael Tushman, Harvard University Variations in Organization Science celebrates Donald T Campbell's many contributions to organization science, presenting new variations which stem directly from his work. Contributing authors review and extend Campbell's theories in four major areas: blind variation, selection and retention especially inside firms; multilevel co-evolution in organizational parts and wholes; process level analysis and modelling epistemology and methodology. The book includes an unusual appendix, Donald T Campbell's curriculum vitae.
