Routledge Studies in Technology, Work and Organizations

Series Editor: David Preece

The books in the series offer groundings in central elements of the management of technology and innovation. They provide stimulating treatments of key themes which form part of the Management of Technology and/or Innovation syllabus and are primarily aimed at advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and lecturing and research staff. The books explain, develop and critically explore issues and concepts on the assumption that students and staff already have a basic understanding of the area. All the books in the series incorporate a combination of this review of the current state of knowledge in a particular aspect of the management of technology/innovation with the presentation and discussion of new primary material not previously published.
