Institutional Theory in Organization Studies

Five Volume Set
Edited by:

May 2012 | 1 848 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Institutional theory is a wide ranging body of work that has had, and continuous to have, a huge impact in political science, sociology and organization studies. However, there remains a gap for a collection that addresses organizational institutionalism - by far the most used perspective within organization and management theory.

From the authors of The SAGE Handbook of Organizational Institutionalism, this major work takes stock of institutional theory by reviewing its foundations, current status and emerging new directions with a selection of the seminal articles that have appeared over the last 60 years.
