"The Discipline of Teamwork represents a major work at the fulcrum of organizational culture, organization communication, and social change." 

Patricia A. Adler

". . .a sophisticated ethnographic research study on team behavior and culture that should appeal to the academic community seeking to advance the theory and understanding of participation and concertive control."

Anthony R. Montebello
Senior VP, Psychological Associates, Inc

A great book on the concept of teamworking that provides a critical insight to the issues of power and control as they apply to teams. The idea of concertive control will be well received
