Although diversity is the current buzzword in management theory, we still have only a slight understanding of how demographic differences within organizations influence individuals' attitudes and behavior toward each other and the organization as a whole. Demographic Differences in Organizations fills this void. Meticulously researched and authored by two respected scholars-one working in this country, the other in Hong Kong-this book addresses the problems and benefits associated with an increasingly diverse global workforce. Unlike most other researchers in the field, Anne Tsui and Barbara Gutek are interested in the effects of demographic diversity on all members of an organization, not just minority or newly arrived groups. This broad-based, highly readable study should be read by managers, academics in business management and social psychology, and students of business at the undergraduate and graduate more
