"'Clegg, Kornberger and Pitsis have significantly raised the bar for designing introductory management textbooks from the learner's perspective. These are clearly passionate teachers who wish to help students flourish in organizational surroundings and master the craft of management. For students beginning the management career trek, I'm confident that this book will become a trusted, well-worn text' - David A Whetten, Brigham Young University 'The real genius of Managing and Organizations is that it is thorough without being burdensome, inclusive without being marginal, scholarly without being heavy-handed, and relevant without being trite. And to top it all off, it's eminently readable. This is a rare feat indeedl I intend on adopting this book for my courses and recommending it to my colleagues. Managing and Organizations is an important book that, in my judgment, is an exemplar of integrative thinking that should be required reading for all students of management, whether they pursue scholarship, pedagogy, or practice' - James Bailey, George Washington University & London Business School"
