"Dobson and Starkey have successfully updated their earlier work to provide a well written, comprehensive and authoritative book. The book contains a number of intersting case studies as well as chapter vignettes which provide a broad range of contexts within which the concepts and frameworks are discussed. The breadth of coverage is a distinct asset ensuring not only that all types of organisation are discussed, but also that the ideas presented can be viewed through a variety of lenses."
