Modern Organizations: Theory and Practice

Synopsis

Farazmand and his contributors examine organizations of all kinds, types, and functions. They explain organization as (1) an organization of society with roles in the distribution and exercise of power by power elites--currently dominated by corporate power structure--and (2) as an organizing activity to accomplished human tasks and to solve problems. They also provide a succinct analysis of theoretical and conceptual perspectives on modern organizations, their functions, roles, and contributions or effects on society at local, national, and global levels.
