Lively and informative, this masterfully crafted introduction condenses the essentials of the field into a tightly focused presentation. Its clear, concise format makes it a viable alternative to the traditional 600-700 page core text and flexible enough to combine with outside cases, readings, and experiential materials. Supplemented with a student oriented CD-ROM (optional) featuring a video case and additional text content as well as a robust web site. This title is the brief version of Robbins OB, 8/e. Several chapters have been consolidated._
