Description

Throughout the chapters, extended narratives are used to develop theoretical arguments, allowing students to see how the theories work in actual situations. The purpose of the text is threefold: First, it helps develop a theory of organizational life that speaks directly to the agency of its members and to the organization as the domain of its practical expression. Second, it more thoroughly articulates and integrates the concepts of the self, morality, the organization, power, and resistance. Third, it provides readers with the analytical tools to consider their own moral conduct as organizational members.
