Classic Research in Management presents, for each research programme, a comprehensive set of papers which have had a major impact on subsequent research and thinking. In many cases these research reports and articles have appeared in books which are now out of print, or are in early issues of journals which are not easily available to libraries. Each volume has been collected and presented by a specialist scholar in that field. Each chosen article is reproduced in full. The volumes enable a detailed analysis of the distinctive contribution of each research programme in its historical context. The series offers an important resource for use by academics and advanced students in the field in increasing their knowledge and understanding of the historical development of the management discipline.
