Gender, Power, and Organisation: A Psychological Perspective

By Paula Nicolson | Go to book overview
Save to active project


Caroline Dryden persuaded me to submit the proposal for this book during a conversation in a crowded pub, and now the book is finished I would like to thank her. Sue Walsh eventually convinced me of the importance of psychoanalytic insights into the relationship of gender to power, and we have had some interesting arguments to that end.

They and many others provided stimulation and support during the intervening years as I wrote and rewrote the manuscript. They include Jane Ussher and Jan Burns, other colleagues and friends in the Psychology of Women Section, the Universities of East London and Sheffield, the legal profession and the National Health Service.

I would specifically like to mention Bipasha Ahmed, Kay Barnes, Dorothy Birks, Jill Brunt, Precilla Choi, Kathleen Cox, Kathy Doherty, Janet Kells, Sian Lewis, Kate McKenzie Davey, Glenys Parry, Anna Thomasson, Jill Tunaley, Sharon Wallach, Christopher Welsh and Anne Woollett. Thanks also goes to Viv Ward at Routledge for her support and patience.

Finally, I wish to acknowledge the late Barrie Newman (who gave me invaluable insights into relevant aspects of sociology, although I am not so sure he would have really liked what I have made of it all); Derry Nicolson, who organised our entire house move whilst I finished this book; and Sue Thorpe and Richard Alderslade, who were there, both on e-mail and in person, while I was writing the last draft.
