About the book
Sociology and social theory has always been a major source of new perspectives for organization studies. The Oxford Handbook of Sociology, Social Theory and Organization Studies: Contemporary Currents aims to strengthen ties between organization studies and contemporary sociological work at a time when there are increasing institutional barriers to such cooperation, potentially generating a myopia that constricts new developments. In conjunction with its companion volume, The Oxford Handbook of Sociology and Organization Studies: Classical Foundations, the text provides a comprehensive account of the productive and critical interaction between sociology and organization studies.
By drawing on a group of internationally renowned scholars committed in their own work to strengthening the links between sociology and organization studies, and by asking them to provide clear and precise takes on particular theorists and research themes which have straddled this divide, the volume provides faculty and post graduate researchers with a series of appreciative, authoritative and critical accounts.
The book launch is open for everyone but we kindly ask you to sign up via the platform at firstname.lastname@example.org so we know how much catering to order.
Book sale after the launch, where we will be selling the two books at a discounted price.
