International Review of Industrial and Organizational Psychology, Volume 20, 2005
Continuing in the tradition of the series as a whole, this twentieth volume provides scholarly, up-to-the-minute reviews and updates of work in a number of well-established areas such as: mergers and acquisitions, burnout and health, and personality in industrial and organizational psychology. Emergent issues are also covered in chapters on social identity, emotions in organizations, the contribution of industrial and organizational psychology to ensuring safety in commercial aircraft, and the analysis of justice in human resource management decisions. Each chapter offers a comprehensive and critical survey of the chosen topic, and each is supported by a valuable bibliography. For advanced students, academics and researchers, as well as professional psychologists and managers, this remains the most authoritative and current guide to new developments and established knowledge in the field of industrial and organizational psychology.
