Regulation and Organisations International Perspectives

Edited By Lars Engwall, Glenn Morgan Copyright 1999

    During the 1980s and 1990s, organisations have undergone both regulation and deregulation. This set of papers written by a distinguished selection of international experts examines the nature of regulation, its evolution in particular sectors and its impact on social and economic equality. It draws on social theory concerned with the nature of regulation and order in modern societies as well as providing as a series of detailed analyses of particular forms of regulatory regimes in national and international contexts. The book should be of particular interest to management and business researchers, sociologists and political economists concerned with the process of regulation and its impact on organisations and management.
