This second edition is a revision of a successful reader in organizational behavior, edited by Jerald Greenberg. This volume describes the latest advances in the field of organizational behavior.

Topics covered include: affect, stress, self-fulfilling prophecies, diversity, justice, reputations, deviant behavior, conflict, construct validity, and cross-cultural behavior. The book concludes with a commentary chapter by Ed Locke--a distinguished senior scholar--who offers directions and guidance on the field's future.
This book will appeal to professors and scholars in industrial-organizational psychology, organizational behavior, human resource management, and social psychology. It is an invaluable compendium reporting on the state of the science in a rapidly developing field.
