Organisational theory is vitally relevant to today's student of business. Understanding Business Organisations introduces the student to classic debates and new perspectives on organisations through a wide ranging but approachable selection of readings.

This text:

* considers why organisations matter to employees and customers

* discusses theories of the organisation as a mode of empowerment and of control.

Examining these theories in the light of current programmes of organisational change gives the book a case study element that will be invaluable for teaching and learning.
